Ok, so every year when the Daddy Bird's birthday rolls around, I get really excited about the possibility of creating some fantastic, gourmet confection for the big day. The first 5 or so years of our marriage, this is what went down:
Mama Bird: Happy Birthday! Look at this yummy (fill in the blank here, I've made cheesecakes, cakes, pies, etc. etc.) I made to celebrate!
Daddy Bird: Uh, thanks...! (Mustered up enthusiasm here) You really shouldn't have gone to all that trouble.
Mama Bird: I LOVE to bake! Especially for you! Just try some.
Daddy Bird: It's really, really great, but what I really want for my birthday next year is...
Are you kidding me?
So I thought I'd share this recipe for a super easy dessert that I'm actually embarrassed to admit making. It's not even baking. But it is really yummy. :)
Cool Whip Cherry Pie
1 small carton of cool whip, thawed
1 8oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 graham cracker crust
1 can of cherry pie filling
Cream cool whip, cream cheese, and sugar together with an electric mixer. Spread into pie crust and top with pie filling. Chill an hour or so then enjoy!
Who knew it was that easy to please a man?
