While this Cherry cloud dessert is specified with cherry pie filling you can easily create use strawberry pie filling for an equally delicious strawberry cloud dessert.
The best part about this simple light dessert is that it doesn’t heat up the kitchen and takes less than 10 minutes to throw together. If you prefer a lighter calorie dessert feel free to use fat-free whipped topping and Neufchatel cheese in place of the cream cheese.
The base of this cherry angel fluff recipe is angel cake. If you have the time to make your own, I highly recommend it. However, the loaf pan sized angel cakes that are often sold in the bakery of big box stores like Walmart will definitely suffice.
