Do you ever have one of those moments when you want something and you "think" you have all the ingredients. Well I had my mind set on make this Cherries in the Snow from The Country Cook but I didn't fully read the directions when I went into the kitchen. You see, it needed a few hours to rest in the fridge and my tummy wanted something right away. So after a few minutes of feeling disappointed, I decided to throw something together with the ingredients.
I didn't have any graham crackers BUT I did have some vanilla wafers I had been holding onto for while. I have been trying to make a banana pudding for the longest time. Either the bananas would go bad before I had a chance to make it or the family would gobble them up. So I gave up on making that for now.
The family loved these and wanted more. My tummy was happy too. These literally took me just a few minutes to throw together. That is my kind of recipe.
Do you have a go to recipe for a quick family treat?
No Bake Mini Cheesecakes
1 small box of instant cheesecake pudding
1 container of whipped topping
1 can of cherry pie filling
12 vanilla wafers, crumbled
Mix the instant pudding according to package directions. Gently fold in the container of whipped topping. Crush the vanilla wafers ( I place in a freezer bag and whack it with a rolling pin) and place in the bottom of your containers. Spoon in the pudding mixture. Top with the cherry pie filling. Enjoy.
