Cherry Cheese Pie

Cherry Cheese Pie

This Cherry Cheese Pie dessert is made every year at my house for Thanksgiving. This pie has a creamy lemon kissed filling on a homemade graham cracker crust topped with cherries.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 8 servings


  • 1 (8 oz package) cream cheese, softened.
  • 1 (14 oz can) Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (9 ounce) graham cracker crust
  • 1 (21 oz can) cherry pie filling


  1. In large mixing bowl , beat cream cheese until fluffy. If your cream cheese isn't soft enough you will get lumps. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Mix in lemon juice and vanilla until WELL combined. This is important so that it is combined enough and will firm up.

  2. Pour into graham cracker crust and chill at least 3 hours. Pour on cherries (you might not need all of them) and chill before serving.
