Reviews for: Cherry Delight ( Most helpful )
I had a coworker years ago who would make this “cheesecake” for all work functions. I make this myself during summer now, it’s a light and fluffy dessert that is also delicious frozen. The amount of confectioners sugar in the “cheesecake” part can be cut back by half and not even be missed. I also add a couple tablespoons of lemon juice to the filling for a little tartness.
It was very good. Loved it. My only problem was trying to figure out how many graham crackers to use. Is that 20 squares or the whole rectangle as it comes in the box. I think my cracker layer is too thick. I used 15 rectangles when it looked like it was going to be too much, I quit.
Simple, easy to make and easy to keep ingredients on hand for surprise guests!
I made this for Easter/Birthday celebrations for my family. I made one recipe gluten free using S’moreables and did an apple pie filling. I also made 9 13 pan with cherry and lemon piefillings. I did alternating stripes and then swirled the two together. This reminded us of the Charms sweet and sour pops from when we were kids.
The only change I made was to use store bought graham cracker crust shells. Easy, fast and delicious!
Make it 5 star by stirring some cinnamon and almond extract into the pie filling. Yummy!
I added a little lemon juice as suggested. One thing I would recommend is make sure the cream cheese is mixed in really well with the cool whip. I didn’t and I’d get little chunks of solid cream cheese in a bite 🙁 I will know better next time. Also I used a store bought shortbread crust and it was delicious with this recipe.
