Cherry Cheese Pie - A Perfect No Bake Dessert

As a teenager, I discovered a recipe for a cherry cheese pie. For a teenager, it was quite simple – sugar, cream cheese, Dream Whip (yes, I’m that old) and cherry pie filling. For more information on Dream Whip, check out this site http://bit.ly/aS6m7D. I have updated the recipe slightly. I now use readymade whipped topping. The pie filling has been replaced with jams or fresh fruit.

I have been thinking about this recipe a lot because it has been so dang hot. I thought what a perfect time to bring this recipe out again. This is one of those no cook desserts that is perfect for this time of year.

Cherry Cheese Pie

Serves 8.

Ingredients:
1package (8 ounce) cream cheese, room temperature
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1 container (8 ounce) whipped topping
1 Graham cracker crust
1 cup fruit topping, your choice

Directions:
1. Beat cream cheese and sugar together. Add vanilla flavoring. Blend in about 1 cup of whipped topping until mixture is smooth. Add the remainder of the topping. Spread mixture into pie crust. Chill for at least 3 hours.

2. Top with fruit of your choice.
