This was one of my son’s favorite recipes as a child. He loved cherries and anything made with cherries. Actually he still does! This is a really easy dessert to make and will surely please the men in your life, too.


  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 6 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 graham cracker crust

Combine cherry pie filling, coconut and almond flavoring. Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Whip cream, adding the powdered sugar as you whip it. Blend the whipped cream and cream cheese together. Gently fold in the cherry pie mixture. Pour into crust. Chill until firm.
