Soda Cracker (Saltines) Dessert! MAKE IT COLORFUL!!!!!

Just in time for your 4th of July picnic or Labor Day dessert this easy recipe I adapted to my liking for a easy dessert.  Similar to other recipes I have made but this one uses unsalted saltines for a flaky like crust. It may be just what your family/friends would enjoy.  I substituted fresh blackberries/strawberries cut in pieces for a more festive look.  Bummer that my strawberries were not as colorful as I would have liked. :). I thinking next time I may use a strawberry drizzle for the top or mixed fresh fruit cut in small pieces. My artwork is a bit shaky but I think you get the gist. 

The credit for this recipe goes to the link below.  Thanks Quick German Recipes :) 

Fresh blackberries, strawberries and any other fruit you would like!


Happy Dessert time from my kitchen to yours,

This easy flaky dessert recipe is similar to the German Bl├Ątterteig or a French Puff Pastry. But, it's so much simpler to make. AND, it tastes so-o-o good!
This simple dessert is just layers of unsalted soda crackers (saltines), pudding, and Cool Whip. Top with fruit, canned or fresh, or pie filling. It sounds strange, but this quick, easy dessert recipe always brings rave reviews.
