Gram's Pink Stuff

When I was a little girl, my grandma used to make this fluffy, delicious, pink concoction when she had get-togethers at her house.  She'd place a bowl of it right in the corner of the table just close enough to the edge of the table where my little arms could reach it.  When nobody was looking (or so I thought) I'd swipe my finger through it every time I'd walk by.  I simply adored this stuff.

One day when my Gram was putting this on the table, I said, What do you call that, Gram?  She said that she didn't think it really had a name and she asked me what I'd like to call it.  I said, Pink Stuff.  So the name stuck.

If someone were to ask me what my favorite meal is, I'd say weenies and kraut, fried potatoes, beans and cornbread, and Gram's Pink Stuff.

Gram's Pink Stuff

1 can cherry pie filling (21-ounce can)
1 can crushed pineapple (8-ounce can)
1 can condensed milk (12-ounce can)
1 container thawed whipped topping aka Cool Whip (8-ounce tub)

Pour pie filling, pineapple and condensed milk in bowl and mix with hand mixer (you could mix by hand if you wanted the cherries to keep their shape, but I like mine all smooshed up).  Fold in Cool Whip.  Refrigerate.

  5. Cherry Fluff sounds so much better than Pink Stuff, Pam! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. I love it! My recipe calls for pineapple tidbits, but think I would like the crushed better. I also add a small pkg. Of chopped nuts. Walnuts are my favorite!! Cant get enough of this dessert. I call it "pink glop"
