"This pretty pink pie is a cool and tangy treat," remarks Kristyn Hall from her home in Mr. Clemens, Michigan. "I's convenient to make and freeze ahead of time. To serve, just cut it and top slices with whipped cream."
When I worked full-time and needed a quick dessert to take to a potluck or a friend's home, this pie was always the answer. You can substitute a graham cracker crust or use another type of fruit pie filling for a change of pace. Even the chilling time is flexible if you're in a big hurry.
From Hanover, Ontario, Denise Elder shares this dreamy dessert. "The crunchy crust is spread with a rich butter layer, then topped with a fluffy filling flavored with banana, cherries and chocolate," she says. "Guests always tell me the pie reminds them of a banana split...and then ask for seconds.
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.

Package pudding mix, canned cherries and a frozen crust simplify preparation of this dessert. Friends often request it when they come to our house. Sometimes I'll sprinkle toasted pecans on top for crunch.
