Cherry Delight Dessert

My mother always made this dessert when I was growing up and it was one of my favorites.
Even though it's been a while since I've made it myself,I thought I would share the recipe so that others could experience the scrumptious flavor too!

For the bottom layer-

2 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
2/3 cup of butter or margarine 

Press into a 13 X 9 cake pan and bake at 350 degrees until golden.

For the middle layer-

1 eight ounce packages of cream cheese-softened
3 Tablespoons of powered sugar
1 package of Cool Whip

Combine and mix well.
Spread over cooled crust.

Top layer-

I used fresh berries,cooked with a little water and cornstarch,but you can use canned cherry (or another fruit like blueberry or strawberry) pie filling.
You can also top with fresh fruit.
