From Glen Manzer
1 c. 35% whipping cream
1 T. icing sugar
1 envelope vanilla sugar
1 c. each, dried pears, apricots, cherries, cranberries and blueberries
1-1/4 c. dates
1-1/4 c. each, walnuts and whole, natural almonds
Whip the cream until soft peaks form, then add the sugars and whip until just stiff. Arrange the fruit and nuts on a large platter or board and serve the whipped cream on the side. You can use any nut or fruit of your choice. Of course, you also need a box of mandarin oranges to eat with this! Serve the nuts and fruits with a dollop of whipped cream.
