Robbie's Cherry Dessert Recipes for Ida

These recipes are for Ida, who is looking for a recipe she lost. I do not know if any of these will be close to what you use to make. You can use any cookie in place of the Oreos, such as sugar cookies or chocolate cookies. I have never tried using crumbled cookies in place of the crackers in the second recipe. These are always eaten quickly and many have asked for the recipes. They are also nice as they can be made ahead.
