I never fail to get compliments when I make this. No one can believe it is made with saltine crackers! I usually make it in a rectangular casserole so there is extra room assemble the filling and whipped cream in the dish and cut it like a cake. People can then just help themselves to a piece especially at parties where a host may not be available to show them how to assemble it. NOTE: Don't do this too far in advance though or the crust will become soggy. Read More

The recipe intrigued me because it was so different from any bake I've tried so I thought I'd give it a whirl. It was different but way too sweet for us. Read More

This was my mother's go to recipe. She took it to nearly every gathering we ever went to. She never cut-into-squares-and-then-top. Once it cooled in the pan she would spread the cool whip and then top with the cherries...she would use a spoon and place each individual cherry to make sure there was enough to cover beautifully. We've used many other toppings over the years too...strawberry blueberry pineapple etc. Everyone is always shocked to hear about the saltines.:o) Read More
