Equipment

  • Mixing Bowl
  • 9x13-inch Baking Pan

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 21 ounces cherry pie filling
  • 16 ounces crushed pineapple drained
  • 12 ounces Cool Whip
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 15 maraschino cherries

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until smooth and creamy.
  • Stir in cherry pie filling and crushed pineapple. Fold in Cool Whip and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.
  • Pour into a 9 x 13 inch pan and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or overnight) before serving.
  • Top with additional crushed walnuts and 15 cherries spread evenly over the top of the salad.

Notes

Here is how to make your own whip cream:
  • In a chilled metal bowl (it doesn’t necessarily have to be metal, but I feel like it keeps it a little cooler) combine 2 cups of heavy whipping cream and two tablespoons of sugar.
  • Using an electric mixer, (I used a hand mixer) combine the ingredients until fully incorporated, and the whipped topping forms peaks.
  • Store in fridge until ready to serve, or use in recipe.
