Put on your fat pants ... it's pie time ! You can make this kid friendly by leaving out the Kahlua. We like Kahlua .. but you can add Baileys or anything you like. Just so good !

    cream cheese - softened
  • 1/4 c
    kahlua (or any other liqueur you like)
  • 1 c
    very cold whole milk or half and half
  • 1

How To Make cheery cream cheese cherry pie

  • 1
    Place the can of cherry pie filling into the fridge so it will be very cold at serving time.
  • 2
    Put your softened cream cheese into a medium size bowl. Whip the cream cheese until it's light and fluffy.
  • 3
    Slowly add the Kahlua to the whipped cream cheese and beat until well incorporated. Gradually add milk until the mixture is well blended.
  • 4
    Sprinkle the dry pudding mix over the cream cheese mixture and beat for about 40 seconds. Be sure you scrape down the sides of the bowl to get everything incorporated.
  • 5
    Scoop your mixture into the pie crust and spread it around. Put it into the refrigerator and chill well .. at least an hour or more.
  • 6
    At serving time you can either pour the entire can of cherries on top of the pie and then slice and serve or just slice and serve and let everyone put on their own cherries. Top with some whipped cream and enjoy !

    It's fun to shake some chocolate sprinkles on top of the whipped cream at serving time. Be sure to store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
