My Mom Makes This Special Cake For All Family Parties
Sharing today’s recipe with you is a big deal for me because it’s been in my family for many, many years. My mother makes it for every special occasion and she might freak out if she knew I was giving her secret recipe to the world. Oh well, what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her…and you guys are going to love me for it so here goes! This Cherry Cheesecake dessert is easy and quick and doesn’t need to be baked. Unlike some cheesecakes you get in restaurants that are rich and firm, this recipe makes a soft, light, and moist cake that’s slightly sweet and very creamy. The canned cherries on top add a fruity sweetness that compliment the cheese perfectly and make the presentation impressive and tempting. I can’t wait to hear what you think of this very special family recipe. Just don’t tell my mom where you got it! Enjoy!
MOM’S CHERRY CHEESECAKE
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (reserve 1/8 cup)
1/3 cup sugar
1 envelope of Dream Whip
1/2 cup milk
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
1/4 cup icing sugar
1 can cherry pie filling
To make the crust: combine the butter with the graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Press into a 9 inch pie plate, reserving an 1/8 cup to sprinkle on the pie later.
Beat together the Dream Whip and milk until stiff. In a separate bowl mix together the cheese and icing sugar. Fold in the whipped cream then beat out the lumps. Pour into prepared crust and wait 5 minutes until the pie stiffens a little.
Gently pour 1 can of cherry pie filling over the cheese cake using a tablespoon. Sprinkle the reserved graham crumbs over the top and chill for at least 4 hours. Enjoy!
10 Minutes to Prep & Only 4 Ingredients!
I just found the easiest recipe to satisfy my peanut butter craving. Normally, I enjoy a tablespoon right out of the jar, but today I was craving cookies and I found an easy and quick recipe in my collection. All you need is 4 ingredients, or 5 if you want to add marshmallows like I just did. Now, I’m not the biggest marshmallow fan but I had some extra left over from my Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies recipe and I thought it would be a good combination with peanut butter. The one thing I learned, however, is that you should place the marshmallows on top of the cookies once you’ve scooped them onto the baking sheet. This will prevent them from sticking to the pan if they’re on the bottom of the batter. Lesson learned!
EASIEST PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet.
Beat the egg, baking soda and sugar until fluffy. Using a wooden spoon, mix in the peanut butter. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Place a couple marshmallows on top of each cookie. Bake 10-13 minutes. That’s it! Enjoy!
Listen up Nut Lovers…it only takes 15 minutes to prep this pie!
I love nuts but my Dad is the King of all nut lovers! So when I went home to visit recently, I wanted to make him something special and what could be better than a Chocolate Walnut Pie? Did I mention that my dad is a huge chocolate fan too? The perfect combination! I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com and I was happy to see that the ingredients were simple and I had everything on hand. Even better is that this dessert is both easy and quick to make, especially if you use a ready-made crust! It only took me about 15 minutes to prepare the pie and then it was just a matter of waiting for it to bake…about 40 to 50 minutes. The result was a sweet chocolaty pie with a nutty crunch. Needless to say, my dad LOVED it…and the rest of my family enjoyed it too. Let me know what you think of this sweet treat. Enjoy!
EASY CHOCOLATE WALNUT PIE
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup margarine
2 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
Melt the margarine and the chocolate together, stirring until chocolate is smooth. Add eggs, sugar, salt, and syrup. Stir until everything is mixed thoroughly. Stir in walnuts and pour into unbaked pie shell.
Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 40-50 minutes, or until pie is set. Let sit for 30 minutes before slicing.
A Microwave is the trick to this quick dessert!
I LOVE apple pie. Whether it’s fall, winter, spring or summer, I could eat a hot slice with vanilla ice cream anytime. But when it comes to pie desserts, easy and quick are not words that come to mind especially when you have to make a pie crust. However, I just found a super easy way to make a similar apple pie dessert–apple crisp! The site About.com has a short video on how to make apple crisp in the microwave! It doesn’t suggest you add the ice cream afterwards, but that goes without saying, right? Get the recipe here!
