My sweet Mom (Linda Jackson) used to make these when I was a little girl, and I just loved them!  You can serve this as an appetizer, a salad or a dessert.

  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 large can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (nuts are optional)

Mix together cherry pie filling, sweetened condensed milk, pineapple and whipped topping in a large bowl.  If using nuts, add them and stir all ingredients well, to combine.  Place cupcake liners in a muffin pan and add cherry mixture.  Freeze until firm - at least a couple of hours.  You may also just freeze mixture in a loaf pan or even a bowl.
