Cherry Delight

Do you need a yummy yet simple dessert to take for a Memorial Day Party or any get together this summer?  This one will definitely be a crowd pleaser.  This recipe has been around for many years.  It just happens to be one of my daddy's favorites.

It is yummy and even better the next day!  

And doesn't it look pretty on my grandmother's Dessert Rose plate?

Cherry Delight


1 3/4 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter

 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup Confectioner's powdered sugar
1 8-ounce carton of Cool Whip
1 28-ounce can cherry pie filling


In a 9 x 9 inch baking pan mix graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar.  Spread on bottom of pan packing down to form a crust.

With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, add powdered sugar and Cool Whip
to the cream cheese and mix until well blended.

Spread on top of the graham cracker crust.

Spread the cherry pie filling on top.

Chill in refrigerator for three hours.  (It is even better to chill overnight).

Serve to family and friends!
