"My husband ate half of it when he got home from work - couldn't wait for me to make fresh whipped cream. Couldn't even wait to have dinner first! Will definitely make this easy dessert again. And it came out fine in a 9x9 pan (all I had)"

"I made this for my step-brother visiting from California. He likes cherries and Mom already made cherry pie so I searched for another recipe. This was a huge hit! My step-brother's comments were, "You could market this! I'd buy it for sure!" Very simple to make and great with a dollop of whip cream!"
