Easy Cherry Cream Cheese Pie for Summer

Sometimes I like more complicated desserts, but sometimes I just need easy. I think you know what I’m getting at, right? Maybe you waited too long to get ready for a summer barbecue at you’re at the store and need a quick idea.

Or maybe you’re just tired but still want dessert (my usual state!). Any way you slice it (heh heh), this cherry cream cheese pie is your perfect solution. The whole thing is made with ready made ingredients.

I love making things from scratch too, because they’re delicious. But this cherry cream cheese pie is equally as tasty!

Your fellow barbecue attendees are going to think you slaved away in the kitchen all day. But you didn’t . . . and that will be our little secret.

Note: this is made in a 6″ pie plate. If you want to make it in a regular 9″ pie plate, you’ll just use the second ready made pie crust to cut the designs out of. I’d also buy a larger can of cherry pie filling.

AND if you don’t have a star cookie cutter, you can cut the crust into shapes yourself with a knife or slice vertically to make lattice work.
