Step It Up:
Keep It Simple:
cherry pie filling (2- 21 oz cans)
instant vanilla pudding mix (2 boxes), prepared with milk
cool whip (large tub) (can substitute with whipping cream)
2nd layer ~ Crumble 1 layer of cake in bottom of bowl, add 1 can cherry pie filling, 1 box prepared pudding, and 1/2 tub cool whip.
Refrigerate, Garnish with pecans (nuts) if you prefer.
Notes: Please note that the photo is of 1/2 the recipe. I made just half the recipe for because I did not have a punch bowl and we have a small family. It will make twice as much as shown.
Lightened up version: To lighten it up you can use sugar free cake mix, sugar free pudding mix, light cool whip and fresh cherries.
“When we invite the Holy Ghost to fill our minds with light and knowledge, He “quickens” us, that is to say, enlightens and enlivens the inner man or woman. As a result we notice a measurable difference in our soul. We feel strengthened, filled with peace and joy. We possess spiritual energy and enthusiasm, both of which enhance our natural abilities. We can accomplish more than we otherwise could do on our own. We yearn to become a holier person.”
–Elder Keith K. Hilbig, “Quench Not the Spirit Which Quickens the Inner Man”, October General Conference 2007
