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 cream pie recipe originated. We think it's a delectable dessert, with a nutty crumb crust, real whipped cream and, of course, cherry pie filling. —Carol Wencka, Greenfield, Wisconsin
This ruby-red treat is just sweet enough, with a hint of almond flavor and a good level of cinnamon. The cherries peeking out of the lattice crust makes it so pretty, too. —Josie Bochek, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin
“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.
