    I used to make this all the time, and so did my Mom and I had lost the recipe. Thanks so much for posting, making it tomorrow! Think I will use fresh strawberries on top this time.

    We make something similar, but with only the crust, cream cheese, whipped topping, and the cherry pie filling. Mix the cream cheese and cool whip, Place in the graham cracker crust. Cover with the cherry pie filling and you are done. This is a huge hit everywhere we go.

    The sugar goes into the fruit pie filling. Reread the last instructional paragraph or SEE BELOW:
