Ice Box Cherry Cream Cheese Pie

Icebox Cherry Cream Cheese Pie
Tasted my first cherry pie when I was five years old.  To this day,  I love all kinds of cherry desserts.   This no-bake dessert is another favorite.  It contains a cold vanilla cream cheese filling topped with cherries.  Perfect make ahead dessert for a summer barbecue (or any occasion).    Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Place heavy whipping cream, softened cream cheese, melted butter, vanilla extract, and one tablespoon of sugar in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Combine with electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Taste. Add more sugar if desired. Cover and refrigerate until firm and cold (30 minutes to 1 hour). Do not place in freezer.
  3. Pour mixture into prepared graham cracker crust. Spread evenly with back of a spoon.
  4. Use a teaspoon to remove cherries from can. Arrange in a pretty circular pattern around pie. Drizzle top with the cherry pie filling left in can. Evenly sprinkle with 1/2 tablespoon of sugar.
  5. Cover pie with foil. Refrigerate until firm and cold (30 minutes to 1 hour). Do not place in freezer because it will get too hard (personal experience).
  6. Slice and serve.
