Valentines Day is coming!
To be completely honest, I’ve never been crazy about Valentine’s Day. It’s cute, don’t get me wrong. But I’ve always believed that love should be celebrated on an ongoing basis. Not just reserved for a single day of the year where companies can profit off of our relationships with our loved ones. But I digress…
For me, Valentines day is simply an excuse to make sweet treats. 🙂 I’m not into teddy bears, boxes of stale (and cheap) chocolate, and balloons. I could probably do without the flowers too (red flowers have never been my thing). When brainstorming what kind of dessert I wanted to share with you all for this special day, my first thought was something elaborate. Not too elaborate of course, because ain’t nobody got time for that… but something more out of the ordinary.
The more I thought about it, the more I realized how cool it might be to do something completely opposite. Something that didn’t require a lot of time, effort, skill, or even a mixing bowl! This 10 minute cherry pie dessert in a glass is exactly what you’ve been looking for! It’s inexpensive and is the perfect little dessert to follow after a nice meal. With just 3 ingredients, how can you pass this up?!
To match the simple ingredients, the instructions are simple too. Crush up some graham crackers, crack open a can of cherry pie filling, and whip out some coconut whip. Sounds pretty easy right? Well, it is. The hardest part is probably trying to get the layers just right. But even if each layer is not perfectly even (like mine), it’ll still look cool and taste great! Want to get extra fancy? Try swapping out the coconut whip for cheesecake filling! Trust me, YOU GOT THIS!

10 Minute Cherry Pie Dessert
- 6-8 graham crackers
- 3-4 cups coconut whip
- 1 can cherry pie filling
- Place graham crackers in a baggie and seal, removing the air. Using a rolling pin (or heavy object), smash the crackers until crumbs have formed.
- Add the coconut whip to a piping bag (or use a baggie and cut off a corner),
- Begin layering the cherry pie filling in each of the glasses, followed by the graham cracker crumbs and coconut whip. Repeat until glass is full.
that looks yummy. Is there a brand you would recommend for the cherry pie filling? i have never found one that i like very much with them tending to be “tinny tasting” or way to sweet.
Hi Jacquie, thanks for checking out this post! I’m not brand loyal when it comes to cherry pie filling, as I haven’t had a bad experience with it (yet). I usually just grab whatever’s on sale 🙂 I would try a reduced sugar version and see if that one tastes any better. I agree, sometimes they can be a bit too sweet, but the graham crackers should help to offset that some.
Let me know how it turns out!
