Good Morning my sweet friends....
It's December.....let's enjoy the entire month
as we head toward Christmas Day!

You are going to love today's recipe...
it's so easy to prepare and takes few ingredients!

You know the saying..."All hearts go home for Christmas!"

It's very true for me....
I am flooded with delightful memories of
the holiday season growing up....
My parents made this a very happy and special time for us
and I become a bit melancholy thinking about those times......
This was a dessert Mother made and I can still recall
this dish being served on Christmas Eve....
it calls for Dream Whip...remember that? 

Dream Whip was used in several dessert recipes back then....
this was before Cool Whip.......

I had almost forgotten how delicious this was....

A buttery crust made with real graham crackers......

And...a topping of my favorite pie filling....CHERRY!!!!!

Can you see how pretty this is to serve at Christmas time.....

I could stop right here....and enjoy a big spoonful of this creamy delight...... have waited long's the recipe......

1 1/2 cps graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 package of Dream Whip
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 8 ounce package of cream cheese
1 22 ounce Cherry pie filling

Mix together graham cracker crumbs and melted butter.
Press into a greased 8-inch square baking dish.
Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat Dream Whip and milk
until stiff peaks form.
Add the sugar, vanilla and cream cheese
and beat until well blended.
Pour half of this mixture over the crust.
Spoon half the pie filling over this.
Cover with remaining cheese mixture and spoon remaining
pie filling over all.
Refrigerate before serving.

Yes ma''s gonna be good y'all!
