Cherry Cheese Pie

cherry-cheese-pie

Happy weekend before Thanksgiving!

Here’s a super quick and easy recipe that’s really tasty.

And the good news is it’s a no-bake recipe.

You may have seen this recipe before.  It’s been around a while but I still love to make it during the Holidays.

The cherry filling is generally poured on top of the cheese pie after it’s had time to chill but another option is to cut the pie into pieces first and lay them onto the serving plates.

Then spoon the cherry filling on top of each piece.  It’s such a pretty way to serve the pie.

And if you really want to get creative you can serve this cheese pie with a variety of different toppings and allow your guests to choose whatever flavor they like.

The colors in this dessert are so pretty and festive.

This recipe also looks nice when layered and served in small glasses.  Here’s an example called “Layered Cherry Cheese Pie in a Glass”.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Let’s check out the ingredients.
