Cherry Delight

I found my Aunt Melinda’s recipe for Cherry Delight.  I thought this was going to be a dump cake.  It actually looks like a cheese cake type dessert.  I will be making this for our Christmas in Big Sandy this year.  Let’s see if she knows it’s her recipe. 

First I have to research and find out what is dream whip, I need two packs. LOL.

It was a disaster.  I am updating the recipe below.  The dream whip OMG! There were no instructions on mixing dream whip per box and then adding, so I dumped the dream whip packets into the cream cheese.  Can you picture playdough dried out?

 Once this was corrected, the next day and I started baking the crust, another OMG, is this recipe right?  I called my cousin who gave me the original recipe from Granny.  The good thing with this recipe it said 2 prepared envelopes of dream whip. I wish I would have seen this or the cool whip.

We decided to change the temperature for the crust to 425, as you would cook a pie crust.

The second cherry delight I made was delicious. Next time I will be using cool whip, not dream whip.

Our Christmas is going to be on Saturday. This is leg day with the FASTer Way To Fat Loss, so I get to eat the dessert. Yeah!! Another reason we can incorporate dessert into our lifestyle is with intermittent fasting.
