Cherry Fluffy ☺

Cherry Fluffy is a tasty dessert, just waiting to be eaten. This dessert must be refrigerated 8 hours or overnight before serving. A tip of the hat to Vernon Mauery for this recipe.

Prep Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes | Servings: 24 | Difficulty: Moderate

1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp butter, room temperature
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup milk
37 large marshmallows (4 2/3 cups mini-marshmallows)
1 pt heavy cream
1 can cherry pie filling

Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix the crust ingredients together with hands and spread in a 9-inch x 13-inch baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes.

After baking, crumble the crust with a fork while it is still warm. Save 3/4 cup of the crumbs for topping and press the rest back into the bottom of the baking pan (packed, but not too firm).

For the filling, heat the milk and marshmallows until the marshmallows are melted. Set aside to cool completely, stirring occasionally. Whip cream and fold into the marshmallow mixture.

Spread half the of the marshmallow cream mixture over the crust in the pan. Spread the cherry pie filling in a thin layer over the marshmallow cream layer. Top with the remaining marshmallow cream mixture and finish with the reserved crumbled crust.

Refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight before serving.
