βž” 𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐒𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬:

β€’ 1 Β½ cups graham cracker crumbs

β€’ 6 tablespoons salted butter, melted

β€’ 8 ounce block cream cheese, softened to room temp.

β€’ Β½ cup sugar

β€’ 2 cups (1 pint) heavy whipping cream

β€’ 3 tablespoons sugar

β€’ Β½ teaspoon vanilla extract

β€’ 21 ounce can cherry pie filling



βž” 𝙄𝙣𝙨𝙩𝙧π™ͺπ™˜π™©π™žπ™€π™£π™¨:


1. Start by crushing the graham crackers into crumbs. I put about 10 graham cracker sheets into a ziploc bag then pounded them with a heavy object (like a rolling pin or flat meat tenderizer). You need enough to make 1 Β½ cups in crumbs.


2. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the crumbs (we’ll use that for the topping.) In a medium bowl, combine melted butter with graham cracker crumbs.


3. Spread the rest of the crumbs into a 9×9-inch baking dish. Push down with your hands to make a flat layer.


4. Next, combine softened cream cheese with Β½ cup sugar. This is easiest if you use a stand mixer or a handheld electric mixer. Set this bowl aside.


5. In a separate bowl (to make the whipped cream), combine the heavy whipping cream, 3 tablespoons sugar and vanilla extract. Using a stand or electric mixer, whip it until stiff peaks form. You can skip this if you are using COOL WHIP. This will take a minute or two on a high speed setting.



6. Combine the cream cheese mixture with the whipped cream, by hand, until combined well.


7. Spread half of the cream cheese/whipped cream mixture evenly over crust.


8. Evenly spread the cherry pie filling over the whipped cream layer. Finally, top with the remaining cream cheese/whipped cream mixture. Spread evenly. Top with reserved graham cracker crumbs.


9. Refrigerate for a couple hours (or overnight) before slicing and serving.



βž” Variations:


There are many variations of this classic dessert that you can try. For example, you can use blueberry or apple pie filling instead of cherry. You can also add chopped nuts or shredded coconut to the graham cracker crust for added texture and flavor.


If you want to make this dessert a little healthier, you can use low-fat cream cheese and sugar-free whipped topping. You can also use a homemade cherry pie filling made with fresh cherries instead of canned pie filling.



βž” Conclusion:


Cherry Yum Yum is a classic no-bake dessert that is easy to make and delicious to eat. With just a few simple ingredients, you can create a dessert that will impress your family and friends. Whether you’re serving it at a party or enjoying it as a weeknight treat, Cherry Yum Yum is sure to be a hit. So why not give this recipe a try and see for yourself just how yummy it is!
