Family Recipe Friday - Cherry Delight

For my first Family Recipe Friday I am sharing the recipe for "Cherry Delight".  This is a treat that my Aunt Joyce made for us on Christmas and Thanksgiving when I was growing up and it makes my mouth water just thinking about it.  Not only is it delicious, but it looks elegant as well.

Cherry Delight
1 1/2 c. Graham Cracker Crumbs
1 Stick of Butter
1 8 oz. Cream Cheese
1 c. plus 2 T. Confectionary Sugar
1 Box Dream Whip
1 Can Cherry Pie Filling

Pour melted butter over crumbs.
Line pan with crumbs
Whip Dream Whip, then add cream cheese and sugar and beat until smooth.  Spread this mixture over the crumbs.  Top with Cherries.
