Cherry Cream Cheese Pie Recipe

So this past weekend I was not only in a wedding but I also co-hosted a house warming party for cousin Krista.  It came out beautiful and I can't wait to how the pictures!  But today, I wanted to share the recipe for what I made.  Gosh it has been forever since I have posted a recipe!

Because I didn't have much time or energy I had to think of something simple to make and a light bulb came in my head that these cute little tarts would be perfect!  I would make them for the hub all the time and he loved it and definitely ate more than one.  They are not only darling but absolutely yummy!! They taste kind of like cherry cheese cake.  So here is the how to

Ingredients:

8 oz of cream cheese                             1 cup of heavy whip cream [or cool whip]
1/2 cup of powdered sugar                     6pack of mini graham cracker pie crust
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla                          1 can of cherry pie filling


1. Mix cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and whip cream together [I just throw it all in the Kitchen Aide]
2. You can add more or less of the whip cream until you reach the consistency of your choice.
3. Once it is smooth and creamy carefully fill the pie crusts and top with cherry pie filling.

Yup, it is really that easy and these are a crowd pleaser.  No one would ever know it only takes 6 ingredients.

What my hubby loves about them?
They taste like cheese cake, the cherries on top, and they are the perfect serving size for dessert [he is kinda a health nut].
