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.

“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.”
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
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 recipe originated. We think it’s a delectable dessert, with a nutty crumb crust, real whipped cream and, of course, cherry pie filling.
