Just in time for the 4th of July, Cherries in the Snow is simple so you can spend less time cooking and more time enjoying all the great Indiana festivals!

Cold and creamy right from the fridge makes it a great ending to a hot summer day! Cherries in the Snow can also be made with a Blueberry Pie Filling–but I love the dramatic look of red and white. This is from a beloved church cookbook: Mary and Martha’s Kitchen. Delish!
