This Cherry Delight Recipe post is sponsored by Tide. 

I love everything about summertime. The sunshine, the swimming, the vacations, and the fresh garden produce. We are fortunate enough to live close to a family-owned farm that allows the community to come and pick their own produce. My kids love to opportunity to help pick fresh fruits (and take the tractor rides out to the fields!). We’ve already made 2 visits to the farm so far this year and I have a feeling we will be visiting there many more times over the coming weeks as more and more produce become ready for picking. 

The first week we picked over 10 pounds of strawberries. This past trip we picked a quart of blueberries and about 4 pounds of fresh cherries. I like to freeze some of the fruits so we can enjoy them all year long, then we enjoy snacking on the remaining fruits. Of course, one of our favorite things here is to utilize the fruits in a yummy dessert. Today I wanted to share this Cherry Delight Recipe with you. It’s absolutely delicious! You can make it with fresh cherries or if you’re looking for something a little bit faster (or cherries aren’t in season) you can make it with canned cherry pie filling as well.

One of the things about taking the kids to the farm to pick produce is that they want to sample it. I can’t blame them! Once we pay for our fruits, we find a place to sit down and I let them try a little bit before we head home. The cherries and blueberries from our past trip were so good we decided we would have to return before the picking season for them was over. They were so good!

What wasn’t good was the cherry and blueberry stains on my little ones’ clothes. Of course, Zellene had decided to wear one of her white shirts and Gideon had picked out one of his new polos. 

I recently purchased a new detergent from Tide – Tide Studio Darks & Colors. Combining science and style, the new Studio by Tide Dark & Colors has the cleaning power of Tide but is formulated to fight against fading, stretching, losing shape, and discoloration that can happen by multiple washes.

I don’t know about you, but I love a dark-wash jean. I was tired of my jeans fading over time, so I’m so excited about this new detergent from Tide. It will be perfect for keeping my jeans looks their best, plus helping to maintain the bright colors in many of my children’s clothing. 

But, what I did wonder — does Tide Studio Darks + Colors work as well on stains as my beloved original Tide? I put it to the test on the berry-stained shirts and here’s the results:

I’m so impressed with how well Tide Studio Darks + Colors was able to get out all of the stains my kids threw at it! I also washed some clothes that had been heavily rolled in the dirt (boys will be boys) and ones that had pasta sauce on them. All of the stains came out so well!

Would you like to try Tide Studio Darks + Colors? Right now it is on sale at Target! I got it on sale for just $11.99. Right now if you purchase 3 you get a $10 Target gift card PLUS Cartwheel has a 5% off discount right now. But that’s not all! If you click HERE you can get a coupon for $2 off of Tide Studio Darks + Colors or Tide detergent.  You can print it at home and it’s good through June 29th!  I LOVE finding these great deals on the laundry detergent we use every day. When I can find a great deal like this, I always take advantage of it! 

With so many children (with so many messes), I always purchase Tide. It gets the dirt, grime, and stains out the first time while keeping the laundry for a large family like ours in tip-top shape.

Cherry Delight Recipe

Cherry Delight Recipe

An easy and delicious cherry dessert using either fresh cherries or cherry pie filling. A great no-bake recipe for summertime or holiday gatherings.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Additional Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cream cheese (softened) (8 oz)
  • 1 Whipped Topping (like Cool Whip) softened in the refrigerator (9 oz)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups of fresh cherries with pits removed
  • 1/2 cup crushed walnuts
  • 1 graham cracker crust (make your own or purchase a pre-made one at the store)

Instructions

To Prepare Cherries

  1. Rinse cherries well and then dry.
  2. Slice each cherry in half and remove the pits and stems.
  3. If they seem tart you can add a litttle bit of sugar to them if needed. Ours were already very sweet and ready to go.

To Prepare Cherry Delight Pie

  1. Allow cream cheese to soften.
  2. Mix cream cheese with powdered sugar.
  3. Mix in whipped topping until well mixed, trying not to over mix (about 30 seconds -1 minute of mixing on medium speed in my Kitchen Aid mixer)
  4. Spread cream cheese mixture over graham cracker crust.
  5. Sprinkle nuts on cream cheese.
  6. Top with the sliced cherries.
  7. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.

Notes

Yes, you can use another type of nuts if walnuts aren't your favorite. Try pecans or pistachios, or even a blend of all 3! I purchase chopped nuts and then use a rolling pin to cruch them into tiny pieces.

Yes, you can add other fruits to the topping if you'd like. Fresh blueberries and/or strawberries make a nice additon to this pie.

In a time crunch? You can always use cherry pie filling instead of fresh cherries. 1 can should be plenty.

Cherry Delight Recipe

I learned about this Cherry Delight Recipe from my mother-in-law. I know some people complain about their mother-in-law, but I’m fortunate enough to have been blessed with a great mother-in-law that I really enjoy spending time with. In fact, she even went with me and the kids on our last trip to the farm to pick the cherries. She’s a great mother and grandmother! She’s also a great cook and is always sharing great new recipes with me!

She’s made this recipe a few times for me over the years and I was excited to make it myself with fresh cherries. Everything tastes better with fresh fruits, right?

This no-bake dessert is so easy to fix that it’s a great recipe to make with kids or when you have an event to attend and need to bring a dish you can make quickly. And just look how clean Zellene’s shirt is after a wash with the Tide Studio Darks & Colors. 

I hope you enjoy this tasty summer treat! With its bright red cherries, it is the perfect dessert for Memorial Day or Independence Day. You could also add blueberries to it for a red, white and blue twist. I’m sure the blueberries would taste delightful as well, especially if you can pick them fresh. 

And, don’t forget to print your $2 off Tide coupon and head into stores to pick up a bottle of the new Tide Studio Darks & Colors. Click HERE to print it now.
