Patriotic Trifle

Do you need a quick dessert idea for the Fourth?  Here's one that fits that bill and it tastes good too!

Angel Food Cake
21 oz. can cherry pie filling
21 oz. can blueberry pie filling
12 oz. Cool Whip
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons almond extract

Cut the angel food cake into 1" squares.  Place half in a large trifle bowl (or any large bowl). Spread cherry pie filling over cake.  Mix Cool Whip, sugar and extract together.  Spread half of Cool Whip mixture over cherry pie filling.  Place rest of angel food cake on top.  Then spread blueberry pie filling.  Top with remaining Cool Whip. Refrigerate until ready to serve.  (Although this is one of those desserts that tastes better the next day so allow the flavors to blend!)

Servings:  a lot!
