Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This is a delicious dessert - I usually make it with fresh cherries, but canned work just as well. You might want to adjust the sugar amount though, as canned cherries are often sweeter."

6.29.18 This is such an elegant finish to a really nice meal. Some times simple is best, and that’s one of the things that makes this dessert so special. Creamy, rich but somehow still light,...

I made the recipe as indicated but I used Premium pie filling. I also put in a pie crust as it was easy to present and cut portions both large and small

Delicious. Made it with cherries I had frozen for smoothies chopped in half.

It was a big hit. I cut the sugar a bit.
