Cherry Cheesecake Dip
I love an easy no bake dessert in the summer time. Something that is all made ahead and waiting for you. Just pull it out of the fridge and serve this nice, cool dessert on a hot day. Everyone gets to dip their favorite cookie into this delicious Cherry Cheesecake Dip! We used vanilla wafers, waffle cookies and graham cracker cookies but a chocolate cookie would be great here too.
This only takes a handful of ingredients and a very quick pull together. The best part is that it tastes like scrumptious cheesecake and you did hardly anything to create it. Sweet cherry pie filling from the can adorns the top of a cheesecake bottom. The perfect combination for dunking!!
I love cheesecake but sometimes it can be so filling after a big meal especially in the summer. And who wants to be in the kitchen with a hot oven going. Surely not me!! This would also make a great picnic dessert or one to take to a potluck. Put it in a large plastic container and slide it to the bottom of the cooler to keep cold. Everyone will be thrilled when you pull that out for dessert!!
This dessert or even appetizer literally comes together in 10 minutes. You can lighten things up too a bit if you like with light cream cheese (I don’t think I ever use the regular) and fat free vanilla yogurt. No one would be the wiser! Enjoy this for a lovely get together with your family and friends.
