So when he asked me to make one for our holiday dinner I was like “crap, no Marie Calendars pie this year.” Well, I started looking at recipes and asking my friends. I found a delicious recipe for Cherry Pie. Its a cream cheese/cheesecake pie.
It turned out great. I found the simplest recipe on All Recipes. I am LOVING this site and it has an APP for the iPhone.
1 graham cracker crust
1 8 oz cream cheese, soften. – don’t microwave it to get it soft, that is a no-no. Get the cream cheese out in the morning and leave it out until your ready to make the pie.
1/2 C white sugar- start with 1/4 c first as you blend then add the rest. I found this made it more fluffy.
2 C frozen whipped topping, thawed. –start with 1 c then add the rest. You can get it to the consistency you want by doing it this way.
1 21 oz can of cherry pie filling. –I did drain some of the juice
Then the best part… NO BAKING. Chill the pie for 2-3 hours before and your good to go!!
