When the "magic" ingredient meets a favorite summertime treat, you've got a "white-and-red print" for warm-weather desserts everyone will love. Sweetened condensed milk provides the pale, cool creaminess perfect for frozen cream pies, ice cream, dessert pizza fillings and "magic" cookie bars. Sweet red cherries - conveniently available frozen or as beautiful bottled maraschinos - add the vibrant, fresh-picked flavor and vivid color. With ingredients you already have on hand, these sweet treats will be ready for nibbling at a cookout, at the table with family and friends or in the shade of your own backyard. Now that's summer!
