A dear friend gave me this recipe and I have made it countless times. Easy to make and is just a wonderful dessert. I top it with cherry pie filling or fresh strawberries.

Have been using this recipe now for years! The only substitution that I make is using real butter instead of margarine! I always get raves! This year I bought blueberries to go in the center on whipped cream with cherry pie filling around them for a "Fourth of July" theme!
