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
