This classic and old fashioned Cherry Dessert using whipped cream, marshmallows, and canned cherry pie filling, is delicious.

Yield: Serves 12

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 (8-ounce) package mascarpone cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 2 (16 oz.) cans cherry pie filling

In large bowl, combine pretzel crumbs, melted butter, and pecans and mix well. Press 2/3 in bottom of 13x9" pan. Set aside.

In another large bowl, beat mascarpone cheese, vanilla, 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, and half of the powdered sugar. In another large bowl, combine remaining cream and remaining powdered sugar and beat until thickened. Fold into cream cheese mixture, then fold in marshmallows.
