Cherry Cream Cheese Pie

You’ve had this pie a million times. Your grandmother and aunts probably have this recipe clipped off a cream cheese package from a thousand years ago. It was good then, and it is good now. Not to mention easy-greasy. The phrase ‘simple as pie’ probably got it’s meaning from a recipe just like this one. It’s creamy with the slightest hint of tartness, but sweet as the canned cherries dobbled on top. It’s a sure-fire crowd pleaser.
