Too Hot For The Oven, How About a No-Bake Easy Cherry Cheese Trifle

Thursday, July 16, 2015

 and it's much too hot and humid for baking
in a warm kitchen heated by an oven, wouldn't you say?

So how about an easy dessert that is light
 and doesn't require any baking?

And may I add, it is so delectably de-liiii-ci-ousss!!!

Cherry Cheese Trifle
(Makes 12 to 15 Servings)

1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
{I use the largest tub of cool whip}
1 (13 oz) prepared angel food cake
2 (21 oz) cans cherry pie filling
sliced almonds or pecans (optional)

In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk.  Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.  Stir in 2/3 of whipped topping; set aside.  Tear angel food cake into 1" pieces. Place 1/3 of cake pieces in bottom of a trifle bowl.  Spoon 1/3 of cream cheese filling over cake, and top with 1/3 of pie filling.  Repeat layers twice more.  Spread remaining whipped topping over top of triffle.  Garnish with additional pie filling and sliced almonds or pecans, if desired.

On another note,
check out the cute foodie floats my daughter, Ashley,
found at $5 and Below, for the lake.

Aren't they darling?

She was chillin'...
trying to beat the heat!

Great weekend to float your cares away if the opportunity arises!  ;)
Hope you all have a nice one!

  1. That dessert sounds delicious and so easy! I love the floats too! So adorable!

  2. Oh yummy! Just pinned this recipe for this summer. :)

    We aren't floating this summer but we'll be out at our land which is my husband's happy place. Have a great weekend!

  3. This looks so delicious, and I love your photos! :)

  4. Hi Rhonda,

    The trifle is so delicious looking. I will have to try this.

    The float looks very inviting with this hot, hot weather. :-)


  5. Hmmmm...that sounds wonderful...I am thinking blueberries or lemon, too. I can not imagine living in that heat...misery. We had 90s and humidity for five days and it nearly did me in. It is very temperate here today, but probably not warm enough for a swim.

  6. Hi Rhonda! Oh this looks delicious! Yummy. If I lived close by I'd be over.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
