It's December.....let's enjoy the entire month
as we head toward Christmas Day!
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?
Okay....you have waited long enough....here'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.
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.
