    Dianne there's no turtle in that trifle...I thought we were going to experience something truly exotic, lol. Sounds nice though.

      I take one of these with a pot of coffee. Then make another one, since I don't share well.

        Yummy! Sounds delicious! Rich and full of calories! Must add this to my collection, but wait for company. I fear I would eat it all and be so sick!


          Re: Turtle Trifle

          This sounds amazing and I must make it soon for the family. I will lie about any cream cheese being in it and they all get grossed out by that particular ingredient so I forget to tell them. ha ha ha....

                  Holy Cow! My butt grew three sizes just reading the recipe!

                  It does sound sooo yummy though. I need to find some friends who like pecan pie as much as I do, so I have an excuse to make this and not have to eat it all myself. Hmmm, I wonder if I could make this in a muffin tin and freeze it in single serve portions? OK, so make a that a JUMBO muffin tin.
                  Thanks for another yummy recipe!
