Something From Nothing #6: Creamy Fruit Dip
I know, I know, I've already posted my Something From Nothing recipe for this month, but I thought I'd post one of these simple little recipes each week this month to give those running low on ideas and time a little help. So just in case you need some inspiration for a dish to take to the company potluck, I've got you covered.
I first tasted this recipe many years ago at an office party myself. I ran down the recipe and have been making it ever since. This creamy sweet dip turns a plate of plain old fruit into a delicious dessert. In addition to any kind of fruit you can imagine, I also like serving it with mini pretzel twists and bite size cookies. It really goes well with most anything you can imagine.
Creamy Fruit Dip
The base for this recipe is the sour cream and brown sugar, so if that's all you've got that's good enough, but if you want to kick it up a notch, the vanilla extract gives it that extra little something. Want to give it a bit of a holiday flavor? Add a pinch of cinnamon.
1 cup sour cream
3 - 4 tablespoons light or dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Serve with your favorite cookies and/or fruit.
