Tasty Tuesday - Cherry Angel Food Dessert

Today, I thought I would share a great summer-time treat, Cherry Angel Food Dessert. This is an old favorite recipe of mine that I discovered back in the day when you could get a can of cherry pie filling at Aldi's for 99¢. I bought those cans like crazy and used them in 4-5 of my main staple recipes.

This particular recipe tastes like summer and is a wonderful dish to share at potlucks.

Cherry Angel Food Dessert

2 pkgs. Dream Whip

1 C milk

1 tsp. vanilla

1 Angel Food Cake

6 oz. cream cheese

1 C powdered sugar

1 can Cherry Pie Filling

Mix 2 pkgs. of Dream Whip with the milk and vanilla - prepared according to pkg. directions - in a large bowl.

In another bowl, cream 6 oz. of cream cheese and 1 cup powdered sugar. Then fold into Dream Whip bowl. Stir in one angel food cake that you have cut up into cubes. Spread into a 9x13 casserole dish. Top with one can cherry pie filling. Chill.

I'm sorry no pic of this creation (I know as a good blogger, there should be a picture!). The next time I make one of these, I will post a picture.

my husband loves to use pie fillings for EVERYTHING, but especially french toast. Maybe I could convince him to make this for me. Thanks for sharing:)

This is probably a dumb question, but what is dream whip? It sounds lovely!
