Yogurt and Rolled Wafer Trifle

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes
Stand: 30 minutes

Serves: 12

The secret to this spectacularly different trifle is the dried fruit, infused with cinnamon and brown sugar.  Chopped pecans and a drizzle of maple syrup makes this dessert absolutely irresistible!


1 1/2 cups water
1 cup sweetened dried cranberries, chopped
1 cup dried apple, chopped
1 cup dried apricots, chopped
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 tbsp. grated orange peel
2 containers (32 ounces each ) vanilla low fat yogurt
1 can (13.5 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Pirouette® Chocolate Fudge Rolled Wafers (or your favorite variety)
1 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup pure maple syrup


Heat the water, cranberries, apples, apricots, brown sugar, cinnamon and orange peel in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Let stand for 30 minutes. Discard the liquid and the cinnamon stick. Drain the fruit on paper towels.

Spoon 2 cups yogurt into a trifle or other glass bowl.

Stand the wafers side-by-side in the yogurt to form a complete circle. Add the remaining yogurt. Top the yogurt with the fruit and pecans. Spoon the syrup on top and serve immediately.
