A DELICIOUSLY LIGHT DESSERT
We are in the heat of summer now! Walking outside is liking walking into a sauna. Well, at least it is here in my part of the world. Thank goodness we are blessed with air conditioning. Makes you wonder how those fancy ladies back in the 19th century handled summer with all those layers of petticoats and dresses they wore. They certainly didn't have this scrumptious cherry pie fluff to cool them off!
CAN I USE SUGAR-FREE OPTIONS FOR CHERRY PIE FLUFF?
Absolutely! If you need to watch your sugar intake, it is easy to substitute these ingredients for their sugar-free counterparts. You can also switch up the flavors. Blueberry or strawberry pie filling will both work wonderfully in this recipe.
