Cut up and drain oranges and pineapple. Make dressing in a medium saucepan; combine flour, sugar, salt, and half and half. Cook over medium heat until it boils, but do not scorch. Add half of the marshmallows while the dressing is hot. Stir until frothy and set aside to cool.

Mix fruit with remaining marshmallows, coconut and pecans. Put fruit in a bowl and cover with dressing, but do not mix. Sprinkle with coconut to make snow effect and arrange cherries on top in desired design. Make 2 hours ahead of time. Refrigerate.

Cherries in the Snow

What a spectacular sounding dessert. I'll have to try it soon. Sounds like it might be on weight watchers diet too. LOL! Ha! Ha! (07/22/2009)

  • 6 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 12 saltine crackers, crushed
  • 2 cups whipped topping
  • 1 21-ounce can cherry pie filling


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat egg whites in mixer bowl until soft peaks form. Add cream of tartar. Add sugar gradually, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold in walnuts and cracker crumbs. Place in greased 9x13 inch baking dish.

Bake for 20 minutes. This will rise high and then fall when removed from oven. Cool. Spread whipped topping over baked layer. Drop pie filling over whipped topping like cherries falling in the snow. Cut into servings.
