Cherry Delight




This is another request for Easter dinner.  This is a family favorite.  I don't think I've ever met anyone who doesn't like "Cherry Delight".

This is a recipe that's been around "forever".  This is my mother's recipe, and my dad's favorite dessert.  So my mother requested that I bring it.  My dad won't ever eat dessert after dinner but asks me to leave a piece for him to have the next morning with his coffee!


I bought my old Corningware dish at an antique store in downtown Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  They have a lot of wonderful antique stores along Main Street as well as on Spanish Street.

If you are ever in the area, it is worth spending some time looking around.  

My grandmother always made her Four Stack dessert in her square Corningware dish, and it is the perfect size for many things!!

This dessert goes fast.  You might need to make two for a crowd.

2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
1/2 stick of butter (melted)

How to make Cherry Delight:
