To me, the holidays are all about the sweets!! I love a good cake, cookie, or pie any time of the year but for some reason they just taste better during the holidays. I think at this point in my life it’s safe to say I am not a baker. Try as I might, baking is just something that baffles me. I always burn whatever is in the oven or my end product just doesn’t look right. The taste is always there but the looks not so much. HA!
That’s why when it comes to sweet things I shoot for the simplest, quickest, most foolproof recipe that I can. I discovered this no bake cream cheese pie when I was in high school and it has been my go to ever since!
Have I mentioned lately that I love sung my Flamingo Pink KitchenAid Mixer whenever I get the chance so that was really my excuse to make this pie. HA!
This recipe literally takes about 5 minutes to whip up, a few hours in the fridge and then you can top it with whatever you like! I love easy recipes!!
I usually tip my pie with cherries, hence the name Cherry Cream Cheese Pie, but you could also do strawberries, blueberries, apples, whatever!!
Ready to see how easy it is to make?? Good!
- 1 graham cracker crust
- 8 oz cream cheese room temp
- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 can cherry pie filling
- Beat cream cheese in a mixer until fluffy.
- Mix in sweetened condensed milk until smooth.
- Mix in lemon juice and vanilla.
- Dump mixture into graham cracker crust and refrigerate 3-4 hours or until firm, I usually just leave mine in overnight.
- Top with cherry pie filling and cut.
What is your go to desert to take places??

That sounds like heaven. I think I would just sit down with a fork and eat this entire thing all by myself. And that’s ok, right?

That sounds like an easy and yummy cheesecake to make! I’ve never tried making the no-bake cheesecakes before.
That sounds really good! I love a cheesecake, I’m not that great at making them but I love the taste.
I want that kitchen aid blender. I like the pink but the mint green is the one I really want. Oh and your cherry cream cheese pie looks super good!
