Cherry Lush Dessert

Cherry Lush Dessert

– 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs about 1 package – 6 Tablespoons butter melted – 8 ounce cream cheese softened – ½ cup granulated sugar – 1 teaspoon vanilla – 8 ounce Whipped Topping – 21 ounce cherry pie filling

– Mix the graham crackers together with the butter in a small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons for the top. – Press the graham crackers into the bottom of the pan.  I like to use a flat measuring cup to press it down good.

– Using a hand mixer, mix the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together until light and fluffy.

– Fold the cool whip into the cream cheese with a spatula.  Don’t overmix. – Spread half of the cream cheese mixture over the crust.  Then pour the can of pie filling over the cream cheese.

– Lastly, spoon remaining cream cheese over the pie filling, gently smoothing it out.

– Sprinkle with a couple tablespoons of the graham cracker crumbs & serve.
