This recipe for Rosie's award winning cherry cheese pie comes from her Grandmother, who used to guard the recipe secret, and only in later years started to share the delicious pie recipe.

This cherry pie recipe looks good on any dessert table, and is sure to have no leftovers when everyone is done! The cream cheese topped with the bright red cherries is sure to make your mouth water.

The ingredients you will need for this cherry pie recipe include heavy cream, softened cream cheese, confectioners sugar, and vanilla extract. You will also need a pie crust baked and cooled. This recipe makes enough filling for a 10-inch pie, but you can make a smaller one if you want. It is recommended that if you use a smaller pie crust, you enjoy the leftover filling with the graham cracker and cherry syrup, yum! You will also need some cherry pie filling.To start, in a medium bowl beat the heavy cream until it becomes whipped cream. You will want it to form nice, fluffy peaks, then set aside. Then in another bowl, beat together the cream cheese, with the confectioners sugar and the vanilla extract until they are well combined. Then fold the cream cheese mixture into the whipped cream mixture, then pour the cheese mixture into your baked and cooled pie crust, and smooth out the top. Then arrange the cherries on top of the cheese mixture until the top of the pie is fully covered. Then refrigerate the pie until you are ready to serve.
