  • 2 C graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 tbsp butter or margarine, melted

Mix crumbs with butter and press into 10 inch pie pan. You can shortcut this by a buying ready made graham cracker crust.


  • 16 oz Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Dash of salt
  • 4 eggs

Beat softened cheese until fluffy. Gradually add sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, and salt. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each egg. Pour into prepared crust. Bake at 325 for one hour. Cool. Top with cherry pie filling. Chill until ready to serve
