DELICIOUS NO-BAKE CHERRY DELIGHT
Delicious and simple. Very quick, simple to make with no special ingredients.
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.
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.
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.
