Today's Sunday Supper event is all about PIES!! Sweet or savory, we aren't discriminating on what we're sharing. Thank you to today's host: Erica from The Crumby Cupcake.

Back in the day, I used to live for the no-bake cheesecake box mix. I had a mega sweet tooth when I was pregnant with my now-8 year old daughter, Cambria (don't mind me while I sob in the corner here - I've been saying that a lot lately. All my babies are getting so big). I would buy the no-bake cheesecake mix at least once a month and eat it by myself in two or three days. I really appreciate when I can find a good homemade recipe for box mix or something I would order at a restaurant. Copycat recipes are the best! Like the box mix, this recipe is no-bake. I like that it's called a cream cheese pie instead of a cheesecake. To me, it is a little more logical to call it a pie.

I'll be honest here...I'm really picky with pie...mostly because I don't like pie crust. So it really helps that this is graham cracker crust. I think I would eat any pie if it had a graham cracker crust. Okay, that's a lie! I do prefer an actual pie crust for things like Cheeseburger Pie (and quiche). But for sweet pies, I don't want pie crust. I'm unbelievably happy with how this recipe turned out. It tastes identical to the one I used to purchase at the store. You can top it with lemon pie filling or blueberry pie filling too. It doesn't absolutely have to be cherry. Although you may not want to call it cherry cream cheese pie if you don't use cherries - haha!

What you need:
  • 2 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 8 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
Directions:
  1. Stir graham cracker crumbs and melted butter together. Press into the bottom and sides of a pie dish. Bake at 325* for 5 minutes. Then let cool completely.
  2. In a stand mixer, mix cream cheese, condensed milk, lemon juice, and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Fill graham cracker crust with cream cheese mixture and smooth with a spatula to even out.
  4. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for several hours.
  5. Uncover and top with cherry pie filling; refrigerate until chilled completely.
  6. Keep refrigerated, so that it stays the right consistency. Serve cold!
