  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1-2 cups chopped walnuts

  • 2 packages cream cheese

Directions:

Crust:

Source: Someone brought this dish to a New Year's Day dinner and my husband loved it so much and it was so simple that I duplicated the recipe for him the next week! One recipe of sand tarts is used for the crust and a cherry cheese cake with whipped topping for the filling!

I am confused do you mix all 4 of the filling ingredients together and then top with the cherries and then add more cool whip? or is the cool whip for the top of cherries only?

Hi,

I just realized that I didn't post the recipe quite as clearly as it should have been. Cool Whip is a non-dairy whipped topping, use whipped cream in place of this! The sugar is icing sugar for those of you that are down under and there are 8 oz in a cup.

Mix the sugar, lemon juice and cream cheese together and pour onto the crust mixture, top with the cherries and then the whipped cream.

For the crust, you mix all ingredients well and spread into the dish and bake until done. Let this totally cool before adding the other ingredients. I hope this clears things up. Sorry for the mistakes!
