Reviews for Cherry Cream Pie
"I didn't make the crust (allergies) so used a package Graham cracker crust. Used vanilla extract (allergies) and 1/2 tub cool whip (lazy). Delicious. Would like more cheese layer."
"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!"
