Recipe Tuesday

I went to get my allergy shot today and the TV in the waiting area had a Paula Deen cooking show on. She was making a Cherry Cream Cheese Pie. It looked yummy. So I looked up the recipe and wanted to share it. I plan to make it as soon as I get all the ingredients.



In either a stand mixer fixed with a paddle attachment or using a hand held electric mixer, cream the cream cheese until light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Slowly add the milk mixing on low speed until well combined. Stir in the lemon juice and vanilla and pour into the crust. Place the pie into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours up to overnight, until well chilled and set.

Top the pie with the pie filling just before serving.

One thought on “Recipe Tuesday

  1. I make this pie for family reunions, and it is quite popular. Usually, instead of the cherry pie filling, I make a topping out of crushed pineapple, drained. Then I thicken the juice with cornstarch (and also use sugar if it’s the pineapple packed in its own syrup). I have also used blueberry pie filling, which is good. But whatever topping you use, this recipe is a winner!
