Foodie Friday - Cherry Gelatin Dessert


Hosted by

When we bought our current home, we were lucky to find a great realtor! It's been over a year since we bought this home, and every month we get a newsletter from our agent. They contain fun random facts, information on home upkeep, and usually a recipe. I just got July's newsletter, and decided I had to make this months recipe. It couldn't wait!  I didn't have the same ingredients, so like always I improvised and used what I had on hand.

Cherry Gelatin Dessert
2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 sticks butter

Soften the butter and mix all the ingredients together. Press into a 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes, or until just lightly golden brown. Let cool. Crumble the crust. If you wish to make small servings crumble the crust into 8 10 oz bowls. Otherwise just keep it in the 9x13 pan.  Reserve about 1/2 cup for topping

16 oz cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla (I prefer Rodelle brand)
1 tub whipped topping

Soften the Cream Cheese. MIx in the powdered sugar until creamy. Add vanilla and whipped topping and mix well. Pour over crumbled crust. 

Cherry Topping
1 cup water
1 cup sugar (divided)
12 oz Frozen Sweet Dark Cherries
3 Tbs cornstarch
2 Tbs Black Cherry gelatin

Mix all but 1/2 cup sugar in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a full boil, and let boil 1-2 minutes. Stir continuously or it will scorch the bottom!  Turn off the heat, and add remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Let cool, and it will thicken.  Once cooled, pour on top of the filling.  Top off with more crumbled crust. Refridgerate until ready to serve. Then Enjoy!
