This is such a simple NO BAKE recipe that can be made in a hurry. I love it because it is super yummy and can be made gluten free with the right crust. It is definitely for those with a sweet tooth! Cherry desserts are some of my favorites, especially when they include whipped cream! Truth is, I could eat a whole tub of Cool Whip straight from the fridge. I remember making pudding pies with my mom when I was a kid and feeling like it was so fancy to use the good pie dish. There is nothing quite so special as that ONE pie dish that comes out for special things. Let’s make a Cherry Cream Pie!





This is such a simple recipe. I love that it comes together in a timely manner! It is a great recipe to make with kids because the measuring is in traditional increments.

Step One

Prep your crust by removing the wrapper and moving it into your favorite baking pie dish.

Step Two

Mix pudding with milk until set and blend in the cream cheese. 
Then, add the cherry pie filling and softened cream cheese. Stir together completely.

Step Four

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. If leaving in the refrigerator for more than one hour, cover in plastic wrap.
