Reviews for Cherry Cream Cheese Pie
"Yummy pie and very easy to make. I used coconut oil instead of butter for the crust. The crust is very thin, so if you like a crust you might want to double it. Also, you could use a pre-made gram cracker crust that was slightly baked for an even quicker pie. I will be making this again."
"Easy to make and tastes wonderful! I've made this many times now."
"So easy & the smell when it was baking was Awesome ! the taste is wonderful ...."
