Cherry Cheesecake Recipe

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. -Mary Smith Bradenton, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 11 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 shortbread or graham cracker crust (8 or 9 inches)
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling


  • 1. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Fold in whipped topping; spoon into crust. Top with pie filling. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"This is a delicious recipe. Super easy and so good. My husband, who is not a lover of cherries, declared it a winner and to prepare it again. The only thing I would suggest is to give it plenty of time in the fridge after making it. Next time, I will make it in the afternoon and let it sit overnight. The filling firms up nicely that way. We will definitely have this again. I highly recommend this recipe.

"This recipe is, by far, easier and better than another recipe I used that called for sweetened condensed milk rather than whipped topping and confectioners' sugar. I never knew if it would set up; this one is always a winner!"

"great recipe, will be great to make this summer as it does not have to be baked. I do not add a topping until it is served, that way you can add anything from blackberrie or strawberry sauce."

"My mom makes her cheesecake like this, but only uses 8oz of cream cheese. Soooo delicous! You can also add 1/2 cup of cocoa powder and another 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and make it a chocolate cheesecake. Just use a chocolate crust! You can swirl choc. syrup on top for a nice presentation."
