  • 1 21-ounce can Cherry Pie filling
  • 8 ounces Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 14-ounce can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/3 cup Lemon juice use real lemon juice, fresh or 100% bottled lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 Graham Cracker Crust

Optional - for a firmer texture

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Knox Unflavored Gelatin powder


Standard method

  • Place the can of cherry pie filling in the refrigerator (unopened).
  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  • Add in the sweetened condensed milk and beat to fully combine.
  • Stir in the lemon juice and vanilla and mix again JUST until the filling is combined.
  • Fill the graham cracker crust with the cream cheese mixture, cover with plastic wrap and chill for a minimum of 4 hours, overnight if possible.
  • Top with the cherry pie filling JUST BEFORE SERVING, cut and serve!
    Alternatively the cherry pie filling can be spooned over individually cut pieces of the pie.
  • Store covered in the fridge for a few days, if it lasts that long!

For a firmer texture

  • Sprinkle the gelatin granules on the lemon juice; do not stir. Allow to sit for 1 minutes.
  • Add the lemon juice with gelatin to the recipe as described above in STEP 4 and continue with the remaining steps.


Pro Tips:

  • Use softened cream cheese.
  • Use real lemon juice.
  • After the filling is in the crust, chill a minimum of 4 hours up to overnight (covered).
  • Refrigerate the can of pie filling for the topping.
  • Add the topping ONLY just before serving for best result.
