Okay y’all, I had totally planned to share this recipe for No Bake Cherry Jell-O Dessert at the beginning of the summer.

PERFECT FOR ANY HOLIDAY

Just because you don’t have to turn on the oven doesn’t mean it’s not a great fall and winter recipe. Actually, I think this dessert is perfect to eat after some of those heavier fall meals that we tend to eat. Cherry gelatin is dressed up with some cherry pie filling, crushed pineapple and it’s all topped with a simple vanilla whipped topping.

You can pretty much use any flavor jell-o and pie filling that you think will work well together. Strawberry pie filling and strawberry jell-o is also a favorite! This is a recipe that will make you feel like a kid again. It’s not a heavy dessert and I promise, you will come home with an empty dish from wherever you take it!
