Cherry Cream Cheese Dessert
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 15 min.
I also have made this as a pie, slightly different filling though: 1 pkg Dream whip, prepared or a carton of cool Whip, mixed with a blend of 8 oz cream cheese and 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar. Also very good with drained canned slice peaches on top.
This dessert has wonderful flavor, but will not thicken ... I use 1/2 a small tub of cool whip to help “firm” it up.
I have made this dessert for 30 years using Philadelphia Orig Cream Cheese and Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk; it is a family favorite. However, recently have found the mixture not to jell or become solid enough to cut. Any suggestions what has happened? I am encouraged to ask TOH readers because friends have similar experience and we cannot solve.

The recipe does not say how long to chill the dessert before serving. I followed the ingredients carefully, but it seems a bit thin also a little too sweet. Next time I will try it with less of the condensed milk or more cream cheese. I hope it thickens after chilling or I will be going to the grocery store to purchase a dessert for my potluck tonight!
I have been making this recipe in pie form for years and years. When my nieces and nephews were young, they asked for this instead of birthday cake. Making it in individual servings is a great idea. It is a wonderful dessert and is very versatile regarding the topping. The fact that it is so incredibly easy makes it almost irresistible!
Recipes for Taste Of Home don't have to be "original". Some cooks are new and have not been making this recipe for 50 years. This was delicious and light, versatile dessert and a "keeper"!
This is an excellent recipe, but my mom was making this in a pie 50 years ago...the only thing different is its split into single servings...not really original.
I make this in a graham pie shell and it's delicious and is my son's favorite pie how ever it makes 6 servings. 8 servings would be a skimpy tease.
Cherry Delight in single servings............ "delightful"
