Cherry Cream Cheese Dessert Recipe

Pretty layers of graham cracker crumbs, creamy filling and fruit topping make this dessert a standout! For a nice change, you can substitute blueberry pie filling or another fruit flavor for the cherry filling called for in the recipe. -Melody Mellinger, Myerstown, Pennsylvania

"One of our favorite dessert recipes...easy to make, delicious to eat and appeals to almost everyone! Could jazz it up with maybe a little lemon zest in the filling, or as another reviewer mentioned switching up the fruit type on top. Overall it's a great basic recipe though. :)"

"This is so yummy! I made it for a dessert after our card night. I didn't have any parfet dishes so I put it into a graham cracker pie crust which was not a good idea because it has pudding consistancy but the flavor was perfect."
