A Taste Away from Home: Cherry Delight

Cherry Delight
from Alyssa R., PEI

2 cups powdered sugar
8 ounces cream cheese
1 package, or envelope, Dream Whip (Dream Whip comes in a box with two packages, if you purchase the small size. You will only need one of those packages for the recipe.)
2 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
1 stick or ½ cup margarine, melted
1 can cherry pie filling

Mix graham cracker crumbs and melted margarine. Pat in a 9×13 pan. Combine cream cheese and powdered sugar; mix well.

Prepare Dream Whip according to package, and add to cream cheese mixture. Layer on top of graham cracker crumbs. Spread pie filling on top of Dream Whip/cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate.

Serve and enjoy!


We had this delicious dessert at the Bed & Breakfast we stayed at in Prince Edward Island.

  1. I made this just the other day, but used prepared whipped topping and put it in an Oreo crust that I got on clearance at Walgreens for $.25. It’s one of our family’s favorites! Oh, and I used about 1/4c regular granulated sugar instead of the powdered sugar and it’s still sweet enough. One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it’s “tweak-able”! Blueberry pie filling is also yummy on top!
