Who would guess the easy flaky dessert was made with soda crackers, instant pudding, and Cool Whip?
It is . . . and it's so quick and easy to make. It's fun making it with my granddaughters; it's that easy Is it German? I don't think so, but it is so light and delicious after a traditional schnitzel dinner, it becomes one of those "cross-cultural" desserts!
I experimented with this, again with the crackers, pudding, Cool Whip, and cherry pie filling, but made it REALLY German. I call this outstanding creation my Black Forest Dessert. You'll understand why once you go and see it. I'm sure you'll want to make it as well. So WUNDERBAR!

Easy German Dessert Recipes
Anne says, "Just made this last week for my Birthday. I usually add walnut pieces or almond slivers. Can't believe it looks exactly the same as my Mama taught me some 40 years ago, the only thing what we did different, we use a fork to make the ridges in the apples. But they do open up better the way you do it with the knife. And you are right, this recipe never fails :)"
Gabriele H. says, "What a wonderful place to find German recipes without having to call family in Germany. I'm loving it."
Catherine R. says, "Tomorrow is a good day to try this!"
"Just like Oma's"
