Cherry O Cheese Pie

Cherry O Cheese Pie, is the dish you want to prepare when you want a cheesecake, but you don’t want to have to actually bake one. This is week 4 in my love affair with cream cheese.

When I first thought of doing this whole 52 Weeks of Cream Cheese, this was the first recipe that popped into mind. This recipe is one my Mom made many times when we were growing up. Now, personally when she put canned blueberry pie topping on this, well I was in heaven. I loved blueberries more than anything I as a child, I think this mostly had to do with the fact, blueberries are often purple.
What’s so great about this Cherry O Cheese Pie? Well if you are someone that is learning to cook, this is the perfect recipe for you. It isn’t difficult to make, and you can use pre packaged graham cracker pie shell. This is also good because if you want to make a dessert for someone, you can leave the whole pie there, and not take any of it home! It is a sneaky thing I do, bringing a dessert in a dish that I don’t need to see again. Finally, this just tastes good, really good.

    I used to make this all the time, and so did my Mom and I had lost the recipe. Thanks so much for posting, making it tomorrow! Think I will use fresh strawberries on top this time.

    We make something similar, but with only the crust, cream cheese, whipped topping, and the cherry pie filling. Mix the cream cheese and cool whip, Place in the graham cracker crust. Cover with the cherry pie filling and you are done. This is a huge hit everywhere we go.

    The sugar goes into the fruit pie filling. Reread the last instructional paragraph or SEE BELOW:
