Cream o Cheese Pie
I am shocked that I have never posted this pie.What can I tell you about this recipe. It is super easy to make and tastes like home. My mom used to make this around all the holidays. Once November or December rolls around I start craving this recipe. It has to be one of those really old recipes that came out around the time of TV dinners. This is really sweet but so am I so it works out.
I highly recommend this pie any time of year. You can make it the night before a party and be a hit when you get there!
8 oz brick of cream cheese (softened)
15 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Graham cracker crust (homemade or store bought)
1 can cherry pie filling
Whip cream cheese in a bowl until it is smooth and fluffy. Add condensed milk and blend until it is fully combined. Then add lemon juice and vanilla extract. Once fully blended our cream cheese mixture into a fully baked graham cracker crust. Place this in refrigerator and chill for at least 2-3 hours. Just before serving, pour cherry pie filling on top. I never our the whole jar, Just a little in the middle and then I set the cherries out for people to add more to the top.
