Hey everyone! I hope you are having a great Sunday. This is Amy, coming at you with this week's pie.
This pie is a super quick and easy one that takes very little effort. Also a total bonus in that most of the ingredients are shelf stable (with the exception of lemon juice and cream cheese. Since both of those keep for ages in the fridge I always have ingredients for this pie on hand.
- 1 pre-made graham cracker pie crust (you can of course make your own if you so desire)
- 1tsp vanilla
- 1 16 oz block cream cheese
- 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/3 cup lemon juice (fresh is best but use what you have)
- 1 can of pie filling for topping (i like cherry)
Mix together the sweetened condensed milk and room-temp cream cheese, use a hand mixer or stand mixer for this part. Once combined use a spatula to mix in lemon juice & vanilla until combined.
Pour into your pie shell and you are done! Let the pie chill in the fridge a few hours before serving. If you want to add toppings (and why wouldn't you) let pie chill for 30 or so minuted and add 3/4 of a can of cherry pie filling on top (the whole can will overflow, don't ask how I know that). Or E's family (where I got this recipe) likes to top the pie with pineapple & maraschino cherries. However you top it this is a tasty, easy, quick desert.
Thanks for checking in here at the pie blog! Catch ya later!
