No-bake Cherry Cheese Pie

cherry pie picture


he countdown to Thanksgiving has begun and there is little time left for pie baking. I am sharing our quickest pie in the recipe box. This pie is so delicious that your friends and family will never know what little effort went into its preparation.  It is beautiful on the table and a sure crowd-pleaser. Most no-bake cheesecakes involve cool whip…well those are two four-letter words that are not allowed in my kitchen. This cherry cheese pie combines cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk for a silky smooth texture. I like to add vanilla bean paste instead of vanilla extract to this recipe. The vanilla bean seeds give an elegant look to the pie filling…people will think this dessert is not as simple as it truthfully is!
