Cherries and coconut come together in our Layered Pineapple Cherry Squares to make a fruity and delicious dessert. Plus, by using store-bought crescent dough, we've lightened the work load so you can throw these together in a jiffy.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (8-ounce) can reduced-fat refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 (8-ounce) package fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons Splenda
  • 2 teaspoons coconut extract
  • 1 package (4-serving) sugar-free vanilla cook & serve pudding mix
  • 1 package (4-serving) sugar-free cherry gelatin
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can tart red cherries, packed in water, drained and liquid reserved
  • 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, packed in juice, drained and liquid reserved
  • 1 1/2 cup lite frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons flaked coconut
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Unroll dough and press to cover bottom of 10-inch x 15-inch rimmed baking sheet. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, Splenda, and coconut extract. Spread evenly over cooled crust.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine dry pudding mix, and dry gelatin. Add enough water to reserved cherry and pineapple liquids to make 1-1/4 cups liquid. Add to pudding mixture; mix well to combine. Stir in cherries and pineapple. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and starts to boil. Remove from heat and let cool completely. When cool, spread mixture evenly over cream cheese mixture.
  4. Spread whipped topping evenly over cherry filling. Evenly sprinkle coconut over top.
  5. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until ready to serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made this last evening and it is absolutely delicious! The only thing I changed was that I used almond extract rather than coconut. My husband said it is definitely a keeper. I will be making it again.

It also asks for 4 serving package of the cherry gelatin. Is that 4 boxes or 1 box that serves 4?

We corrected the recipe. It's one box that serves four.

It says 2 teaspoons of coconut oil divided. Where do you add the 2nd teaspoon? I only see were you add with the cream cheese & splenda.

It actually shouldn't have been divided. We made the correction. Enjoy!

This sounds delicious and I will use it for company this summer.
