This is a delicious dessert recipe that everyone loves and also my husband's latest favorite. Very easy!
Press into baking pan. Bake at 300 degrees F. for 45 min to 1 hour until golden brown. Chill or cool completely before adding filling.
Mix together and pour onto crust once crust has cooled. Top with canned cherries. Then top with Cool Whip!

Best dessert I've had this holiday season. Adaptable for any season or occasion. Presents beautifully and is probably not going to be duplicated at a covered dish event.
Grease cookie sheet. Beat cream cheese and sugar together. Add almond extract, almonds and cherries. Set aside.
Meanwhile, open crescent roll. Lay out on cookie sheet. Pinch together so that it is one single sheet of dough. Try to make it into a rectangle. (I sometimes take a little water to make seams stick together.)
Spread cream cheese mixture down the middle of strip of dough. Leave about 2-1/2 inches around the edges. Make 1/2" slits down each side. Fold strips across each other forming a braid. Close each end well. Then form into desired shape; a candy cane, heart shape, shamrock, bell, wreath, etc. according to the occasion.
Brush with beaten egg. Bake at 375 for 18 - 20 minutes. Cool completely, then drizzle glaze on top. Glaze: Combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 2 tsp. milk until smooth. Drizzle over pastry. I decorate with more cherries and almonds.

Does anyone have a recipe for cherry mash desserts?
Wow. I have never heard of those before. Here are some I found:
This one looks a bit different as it uses cherry pie filling:
And previously on ThriftyFun.com:
I didn't even know there was such a thing as 'cherry' chips.
I remember fondly the Twin Bing candy. I didn't know it was ever called Cherry Mash. I just remember it was very sweet and good.
Hi. I have this one in a church cookbook, hope it is what your looking for.
Cherry Mash Bonbons
1 stick oleo, softened, 1tsp. vanilla
1 can Eagle brand milk, 1 can cherry frosting
1 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips or
1pkg. chocolate almond bark
2.75 oz. paraffin
1 10 oz. jar maraschino cherries, chopped fine.
1 lb. peanuts, chopped very fine
2 lb. powered sugar
Mix softened oleo, milk, cherries chopped fine, (if you use the cherry juice you may need to use more powered sugar.) Add cherry frosting, powered sugar and vanilla. Roll into small balls. Freeze. In top of double boiler melt almond bark OR chocolate chips with paraffin. Add peanuts. Dip cherry mash balls in melted chocolate mixture, with a toothpick. Lay on wax paper to harden. Place in a contained. Can freeze.
Cherry Mash Candy Bars are only made in St Joseph Missouri and can usually only be purchased within the state. They are like the Twin Bing but Cherry Mash are so much better!

I'm looking for a dessert recipe that calls for a graham cracker crust, cherry pie filling, and has a cool whip/cream cheese mixture for the top.
Judy from Marion
Funny, you should ask as I am making the exact same pie right now.
Mix it altogether and pour into a ready made Graham Cracker crust
Refrigerate a few hours(I like to make mine a day ahead)
Voila! Best darn cheesecake you have tasted and no fuss, no bake.
Hope this helps Carolyn (11/22/2006)
Here you have the Cherry Pie Dessert Recipe:
Let cherries sit in juice with 1/4 cup sugar for 2 hours. Drain juice off cherries into a saucepan. Soften gelatin in the cherry juice. Mix in egg yolks and salt. Cook on low heat, stirring constantly, for 4 minutes, until gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in almond extract, red food color, and cherries. Chill until thick, but not coagulated.
In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Fold into cherry mixture. Fold in whipped cream until no streaks remain. Pour into graham cracker crust. Chill in refrigerator.
I hope it will be helpful.
When I was in the store recently, I saw a tub of Philadelphia Cream Cheese that was already sweetened for a pie. It is a nice size tub. All you have to do is put the mixture in a purchased graham cracker crust. Then you put on the pie filling on top. Talk about easy? Super!
My brother makes something called a Cherry Yum Yum maybe you can find it on allrecipes.com or here in thriftyfun. I don't have time to look it up, but it is wonderful and you can substitute the cherries with pineapple. Both are delicious.
Good Luck (11/27/2006)
There's too many recipes for cherry yum YUM. As a child my aunt Judy made this holiday favorite. Did she use dream whip? What about lemon juice? I guess I'll try it all. I'll let you know. (11/21/2007)
Beat dream whip and milnot. Add confectioners sugar, cream cheese. Beat until smooth. Chill 1 hour. Add cherry pie mix to crust and spread remaining dream whip mixture on top.
