    Topher's Note:

    A Jello recipe from my mom that she even named after me for our local cookbook. I love it for the deep cherry flavor. It works great for potlucks or as a side dish to serve with dinner. Chill time is cooking time.

      This is the jello to make if you're looking for something easy, fast, and flavorful. I made this for my family this past weekend and it went over well. The only change I made was to substitute an 8 ounce container of cool whip for the dream whip. I can wait to try this recipe using other flavors of jello and pie filling. Right now peach is sounding good. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe.

      I needed something pinkish for a work baby shower, so I made this. I didn't have the cherry jello at home, but I had raspberry jello and pie filling (which worked beautifully, I might add). Nice, very light and fruity. I had lots of "how did you make this?" requests for this one. I especially like that it's so easy to make, and it's versatile with flavor options. Thanks for posting!
