This is a family favorite! I make the crust with a graham cracker crust: 1/3c sugar, 1/3c butter, 1 1/4c graham cracker crumbs.

I made this as a dip, mixed the cream cheese and sugar, refridge it until firm then spread it on a plate poured cherry pie filling over the cheese mold then served with nilla wafers so people could spread mixture on nilla wafers and it was a huge hit! Thanks!

My mother made almost the same recipe without the cream cheese, but it adds flavor and body to the filling. I made this recently and used a premade graham cracker pie crust.

this was fantastic! i made this recipe in an 11x7 dish. i had to quadruple the whipped cream, cream cheese, & confectioners sugar. i had to double the cherry pie filling. i still just used one package of vanilla wafers. i immediately had people asking me for the recipe.

We loved this pie!!! I used 4oz of reduced fat cream cheese, and full fat for the other 4oz. I added a splash of vanilla to the cream cheese mixture. Oh and I didn't use a whole box of vanilla wafers. Maybe half a box? Loved the flavor of the cookies rather than graham crackers. Anyway, it was outstanding! Like cheesecake, only not so dense. Will definitely be making this one again...and again!!

This couldn't be quicker and simpler to put together. I'll definitely remember this one the next time I need a quick dessert for a potluck. It's great as-is, but I may play around next time and add a bit of butter and sugar to the crushed wafers to make more of a crust. Thanks for a great, EASY recipe.
