This is a really simple & delicious cheesecake/pie that you can make for any special occasion. It is full of fat & sugar, which is what makes it so Sinfully DELICIOUS, so it is a rare treat at our house. I haven't made it in years but wanted to share it with you, in case you needed an easy, tasty dessert to make for friends & family on Valentines Day.
There are only 6 things you need to have...
1 graham cracker crust
1 med. box of Dream Whip, (2 envelopes)
1 block ( 8 oz.) of cream cheese
1 can of cherry pie filling, (21oz.)
1 Cup sugar
Place the block of cream cheese in the bowl of your electric mixer & allow it to come to room temperature.
Add the milk & sugar & both envelopes of Dream Whip to the room temperature cream cheese.
Mix slowly to incorporate then whip at highest speed until smooth.
Pour into graham cracker crust.
Top with 1 can of cherry pie filling
Chill for several hours
It will be a softer cheesecake than the one you bake but if chilled long enough, it will slice nicely. I usually make it early in the morning of the day I want to serve it. The graham cracker crust might get a little soggy overnight.
*EDIT: I just cut into the pie tonight & it is SUPER soft & not holding its shape very well at all. Perhaps it was the skim milk I used? Whatever! I strongly suggest you decrease the amt. of milk to just 1/3 cup!
I'm sure that I never used skim milk all those years ago when I made it. That's what I get for trying to cut calories!
Oh & because B.J. over at Sweet Nothings says to do it, this time, I added just a titch of almond flavoring (that's just a few drops) to the whipped cream cheese mixture. The recipe doesn't call for it but I love almond with cherry ANYTHING!
Thanks for the tip, B.J.
