Layered Cherry Cheese Pie in a Glass

No need to cut this easy-to-make and beautiful pie because it’s served in a glass with layer upon layer of creamy cheese pie goodness.

You may have seen the recipe for the cream cheese filling in this dessert before, it’s often on the label of the Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk can for Cherry Cheese Pie.  It’s one of the easiest pie recipes to make, and tastes amazingly delicious. 

This layered cherry cheese pie dessert in a glass has the same ingredients as the classic cherry cheese pie does only the cheese filling in this dessert is made a little bit differently than it is in the pie recipe.

In this version all of the cream cheese pie filling ingredients are mixed together at the same time so that it’s extra creamy (unlike the cheese pie where there is a specific order in which the ingredients are added so that the after the pie chills, it will set).

For the topping on this dessert you can use cherry pie filling or any other flavor of pie filling, or even fresh fruit or berries if you like.

The idea of making this layered dessert came from these cute glasses I found for only 50 cents each.  They’re actually for candles, so let’s just say, I “repurposed” them for use as a dessert dish.

So let’s check out the ingredients.

Graham crackers, butter, sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, bottled lemon juice, vanilla extract, and cherry pie filling.

Here’s how to make it.

For the Crust:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Add the graham crackers and the butter to a food processor.

Grind until the graham crackers are crumbly.

Then add the graham cracker crumbs to a cookie sheet,

and press them into a thin flat layer.  Bake until they turn a golden brown color (about 10-12 minutes; about the time you start to smell them in the oven they’re close to being done).

Remove from the oven and let cool while making the cheese pie filling.

For the Cheese Pie Filling:

In a medium size bowl add the cream cheese,

sweetened condensed milk,

lemon juice,

and vanilla extract.

Beat ingredients until light and fluffy.

For the Cherry Cheese Pie in a Glass:

Once the browned graham cracker crumbs have cooled, break them up into small pieces.

In small glasses (or dessert dishes), add a layer of the graham cracker crumb pieces…

…then a layer of the cream cheese mixture…

…then a layer of the cherry pie filling.

Next, repeat each layer.

If you have time, chill in the fridge for a couple hours before serving.

If not, it tastes delicious as is.

Then,

grab a spoon and dig in.

You can even top this with whip cream if you like.

Then dig in and enjoy.

Don’t be like me and…

…eat this dessert for breakfast.

  1. how many does this recipe make? How far in advance can you make them? Overnight? Want to make for Easter. Easter morning is already so busy, was hoping to do on Saturday. Thanks!

    • Hi Cindee, this recipe should serve about 6 and should be fine if made a couple of days before Easter. They would need to be kept in the fridge until serving. Just before serving an option may be to top them with whipped cream or Cool Whip too if you like. Have a wonderful holiday and thank you for stopping by.

  2. is the baking part necessary or can you get away with just processing the graham crackers with butter, then placing into the individual glass containers?

    • Hi There! You can definitely skip the baking part for the graham crackers if you like. When baked, the graham cracker crumb mixture browns up just a bit and takes on a slightly differently flavor and texture. But with all of the goodness packed in this delicious cheese pie I’m sure it would still taste wonderful. Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!

  3. Nancy, you complete me. Run away with me. Bring these. Lots of these.

    • Hi Kim, LOL! Only if you bring all of the delicious ice cream flavors you make!!

  4. My father is a huge fan of cheesecake but has a very strong dislike towards graham crackers & I wanted to make him this with oreos… Would I still need the lemon juice?

    • Hi Marlee, I accidently forgot the lemon juice once and the cheese filling was too thin. So you would need to use the lemon juice so the cheese filling is light and fluffy. Oreos would be so pretty with this recipe! I’m going to try that next. Thank you for stopping by!

  5. OH MY! These look spectacular, Nancy! LOVE the idea and your pictures are making me droool!

  6. What a great tutorial! And I’m obsessed with making desserts in jars so this is absolutely perfect for me!

    • Hi! I love making desserts in jars too…they are so pretty. Thank you and have a great week!

  7. “So let’s check out the ingredients:
    Graham crackers, butter, sweetened condensed milk, bottled lemon juice, vanilla extract, and cherry pie filling.”
