Cherry Cream Cheese Pie: No Bake Cheese Cake Pie

No Bake Cream Cheese Pie

Nothing says the holidays like a classic Cherry Cheese Pie.  My family LOVES this pie, and I LOVE how quick and easy it is! Only a few ingredients and  five minutes is all it takes! Let it set up in the fridge for an hour or even better make the day before and dessert is ready!
Cherry Cream Cheese Pie


1 graham cracker crust
2 (8 oz. each) blocks of cream cheese
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 can sweetened condensed milk (or click here: for:  Make Your Own Sweetened Condensed Milk)
Optional Topping: 1 Can of Cherry or Strawberry Pie Filling

Jan's tip: I know this sounds obvious, but make sure you use Sweetened Condensed Milk and NOT evaporated milk, its an easy mistake to make!

In mixing bowl blend cream cheese, condensed milk and lemon juice till well blended
Pour into graham cracker crust and refrigerate at least one hour to set up.
Serve with Pie Filling.

Ok, Some of my family  I do not like Cherry Pie Filling, ok I like the cherry goo, just not biting into the canned cherries. So although some people pour the can of pie filling over the top of the pie before cutting and serving, I do not. I put the pie filling in a bowl and let everyone top there own. (That way I can just scoop up the cherry goo I like and ditch the cherries!:

Here's how the Pie slices up and serves:


  1. It looks really good, is it a light and fluffy cheese cake? I love thick cheesecakes, but have yet to find a good no bake one.

  2. Sue, the pie is pretty thick. It's not fluffy like if it had cool whip in it. It's a pretty dense pie. Still lighter than baked cheesecake, but not thicker than a pudding/coolwhip type pie. It'll hold its shape and won't melt into a puddle or anything like that. You could cut the lemon juice back a bit and that'd make it even thicker, too. Hope that helps!

  3. looks great! thanks for linking it up to the Tea Party Tuesday linky. A no bake cheesecake is always a crowd favorite!

  4. Yum thanks for letting me know, I think this would be perfect and I will cut the lemon juice and I bet it will be great! Cherry goo and all LOL.

  5. I just re-read my first comment and noticed a darned typo! I put that it is not thicker than a pudding/coolwhip pie and meant to say that I think it is thicker than a pudding/coolwhip type pie. Sorry Folks.

  6. Let me know how it goes with cutting the lemon juice back, I think it'll turn out great!

  7. By mistake I had gotten a can of sugar free cherries once and had to use them. Since then we always sugar free cherries and blue berries. Using the sugar free helps keep this great desert from being so sweet and rich. The bad side ... makes you want (and able) to eat more than one slice.

    1. I do the same thing! Glad to know I'm not the only one!
