Cherry Cheese Pie

This pie has been a favorite of mine since my best friend Morgan introduced it to me a few years ago. It’s super easy – whipped cream, cream cheese, and cherry pie filling. Some chilling time in the fridge, and you’re set with a great dessert to take to a pool party or backyard barbecue.

I like to use a blind baked pie shell, because I feel they hold up the best. But, a graham cracker or Oreo crust are also excellent choices that work well with this pie. You can also feel free to switch around pie fillings – I’ve tried it with strawberry and blueberry as well. While I often reach for generic brands to save money, when it comes to pie filling – you get what you pay for. Lucky Leaf has been making quality pie fillings for over 60 years. You guys know I make things “from scratch” as often as I can, but I always keep a couple of cans of these fillings in my pantry – just because they’re such a great “go to” for desserts like this.

The good folks at Lucky Leaf are kicking off a fun Pinterest contest today, so make sure stop by and check it out. We could all use an extra $500 to burn a hole in our apron pockets, amiright?

    Growing up, one of my favorite desserts was cheesecake with cherry pie filling on top. This takes me back, and I would love a slice or more of this right now. It’s only 9:30 in the morning, too!
