Dessert

Cherry Cheese Pie

For a colorful holiday dessert that won't take hours to prepare or a quick weeknight treat that doesn't require much effort, try our Cherry Cheese Pie. It's easy to make, but there is beautiful and delicate flavor in every creamy bite. This pie will give you the same happy feeling that cheesecake does ... without having to do all of that work! You can use a purchased graham cracker or chocolate cookie crust, or make your own if you have time. The Cherry Cheese Pie filling starts with a simple combination of cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla, creamed until smooth. You'll then beat some Smith's Heavy Whipping cream until soft peaks form and gently fold it into the cream cheese mixture. Spread it into your prepared crust and chill until you're ready to serve. Top with cherry pie filling and then watch with delight as your family devours this extra-special, but very low-maintenance Cherry Cheese Pie.
