Cherry Cheese Pie - Oh My!

I found this recipe years ago, and it has become part of my desert repertoire. I like to bring this pie to parties and family gatherings where it is always appreciated, and reviewed favorably. The tartness of the cherries blends with the creamy sweetness of the cheese mixture to bring out a flavor that can only be described as... heavenly.

Warning...once you go public with this pie, you will be required to make it over and over again!

      You caught my attention on this one. I love cherry pie and the idea of mixing it with cream cheese is above scrumptious. I can't wait to try it soon.

      I have frozen cherries in the freezer so I'll try to adapt your recipe for them and give this a go.
