Pecan Pie Trifle

Here’s a little something I whipped up tonight for a meeting I have tomorrow. It is soooo easy to put together:
Pecan Pie Trifle
1 frozen pecan pie, thawed(or one from the bakery section of the market)
8 oz. block of cream cheese, at room temperature
1 1/2 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup Mocha Fudge sauce(in the ice cream topping section)
1/2 cup pecan pieces, toasted
Combine cream cheese, whipping cream, and vanilla in a heavy duty mixer with wire attachment, until smooth(about 3 minutes). Cut pie into 1 inch cubes and layer half into bottom of trifle dish. Top with half of cream cheese mixture, half of fudge sauce, and half of pecans, layering one on top of the other. Place remaining pie pieces, cream cheese mixture, sauce, and nuts, in layers. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours. Delish!!!

    That looks delicious! Neat idea :)

  2. I tried making the recipe as stated and had a disaster. The cream cheese & whipping cream would not blend. I had a horrible mess that looked more like cottage cheese. I dumped the bowl, did some research and figured out a different cream cheese filling. Thank you though for the idea. It’s definitely a change from the usual Thanksgiving Day Pecan Pie:o)
