A no cook summer desert - perfect for any occasion. Quick and easy to make. The fruit pie filling can be changed to your favorite - peach is great too. The chilling time is not included in prep time.

Wonderful dessert! I've made it as listed, and made it substituting cake and fruit types. It always comes out great.
