A nice, light no-bake dessert that's a cross between cake and pudding! Easy and delicious! I made mine low-fat by using low-fat cream cheese and lite whipped topping.

The flour and sugar mixed in with the cherry pie filling and then cooked to have a taste I didn't care for. It also leaves it with a flat and funny shade of red. The pie filling alone would have been fine atop this for both taste and a nicer color. The cream cheese and whipped topping needed a little sugar added in there. Good idea though. Read More

Great recipe - light and lots of flavor. The fat free cream cheese and cool whip works great too. Read More

I was a little disappointed in this recipe but yet it was okay. Two cans of cherry pie filling on top seemed like way too much. I think we may have liked it better if I would just have spread one can of cherry pie filling on top and left out the flour and sugar too. Read More

This was a very easy and delicious recipe..not being a big fan of angel food cake- I was skeptical but it was soo good and will be making it again for the holidays.. TIP from reading another review on it being "rich" I cut the "sugar" in half to 1/2 cup and it was just perfect! I also baked my own angel food cake (from a box mix) and cooked it slightly longer to add some crunch to the top crust..very good! Read More

I didn't care for this at all. The flour mixed in with the pie filling and had an unappetizing appearance. I used half the sugar as recommended by others and then the dessert wasn't sweet enough. Although I don't think being sweeter would have helped it. I did not care for the taste of the cool whip and cream cheese mixed together. Read More
