Cherry Cream Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
A favorite vacation spot in Wisconsin—Door County (in the “thumb” of the state)—is known for its abundance of cherry orchards, and that’s where this recipe originated. We think it’s a delectable dessert, with a nutty crumb crust, real whipped cream and, of course, cherry pie filling.

Very good! Although I thought it could have used a little more of the cream cheese layer for the amount of cherry layer. Loved the crust!
