Notes

  • Baking the graham cracker crust is optional but gives the crust a toastier flavor.
  • Vanilla wafers or shortbread cookie crumbs can be used instead of graham cracker crumbs.
  • Can be made in 2 8-inch X 8-inch pans, or two premade graham cracker or shortbread pie crusts.
  • 2 cups of Dream Whip or homemade whipped cream can be used in place of whipped topping.
  • Other pie fillings may be used as a substitute for cherry.  Try Blueberry for a blueberry delight.
