A graham cracker crust is filled with a creamy sweet concoction and topped with cherry pie filling, to make this easy-to-make, no-bake pie. Best served chilled.
INGREDIENTS (for 9 servings):
- 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 3/4 cup margarine, melted
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 dash vanilla extract
- 1 dash almond extract
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 (12 ounce) can cherry pie filling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9-inch baking dish. In small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and melted margarine. Stir well and press into baking dish. Bake 5 minutes. Cool.
In large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and almond extract. Mix well. In a medium bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture. Spread over cooled crust. Dot with cherry pie filling, and smooth with knife or spatula to cover. Chill in refrigerator until serving.
