I love sweets and this Easy Cherry Dessert is one of my all time favorites. I mean with ‘easy’ and ‘dessert’ in the title how can you go wrong? The baking time/waiting time is longer on this then the prep time and a whole lot harder!
And did I say EASY, the first time I had this my nephew made it for me, he was 6 at the time!
They live in Colorado, I prefer to eat it with this view while sitting on my sisters back porch and when someone else fixes it for me, no matter how easy it is!
My oldest nephew is a senior in high school – I have no idea how that happened!

I’m currently in the process of trying to talk him into coming and living with us after high school – he could go to college here in Indiana, work for us on the farm and, well, make me this dessert maybe once or five times a week!
But I digress……
This Easy Cherry Dessert
….or afternoon snack, or breakfast, or lunch, or while your laying on the couch watching TV – whenever, is one I don’t mind making myself!
It’s actually been known to be a before supper snack or appetizer in our house because I love it that much! It has cream cheese and cherries – they are healthy!
