I created this yummy recipe for a cherry pie contest at the San Diego County Fair when i was first married in 1984. It won the blue ribbon. I love entering contests and am a six-time Pillsbury Bake-Off finalist. —Marian Hollingsworth, La Mesa, California
“This pie was my dad’s favorite and one my mom made frequently for Sunday dinner,” recalls Sandy Jenkins from Elkhorn, Wisconsin. “We had a farm, so mom made her own butter and ice cream, and she used our fresh dairy products for this pie’s great topping.”
My mom is known for her scrumptious desserts. This easy-to-make pie is one she has served often. It's one of my favorite desserts anytime of year. I love the combination of cream cheese and cherry pie filling.

No one would ever dream that the fancy taste and look of this luscious freezer pie from Kimberly West of Prairieville, Louisiana could come from only five simple ingredients! This makes an unbelievably easy dessert—whether for an elegant dinner party or as a cool, high-energy kids’ treat on a sweltering day.
Become the Queen of Hearts when you make these tart-style cherry pies (but without the pepper and treacle, as in "Alice and Wonderland"). Made as single servings, they disappear at the hands of friends and knaves alike. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
“If I can beat the birds to our cherry tree, I'll make this luscious pie. Otherwise, strawberries or blueberries can be substituted. It's especially good served warm with vanilla bean ice cream." —Betty Wingo, Marshall, Arkansas
