How to Make GINNY'S CHERRY-O CREAM PIE

Step-by-Step

  1. CRUST: Combine all ingredients and press into 9 in. pie plate. Chill before filling.
  2. FILLING: In a medium bowl, whip softened cream cheese till fluffy. Add sweetened condensed milk and mix well. Add lemon juice and vanilla and mix well.
