Christmas Pies

December 13, 2011

Every year at Christmas time, I make several pies for my family.  For some reason, I don’t make these all year- I don’t know why not, because they are easy and delicious!  Enjoy these recipes!

CHERRY CREAM CHEESE PIES

1 graham cracker crust

1 8 oz pkg cream cheese

1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk

1/3 cup lemon juice

1 can cherry pie filling

Using an electric mixer, blend cream cheese, Eagle brand, and lemon juice until smooth.  Pour into graham cracker crust and chill several hours or overnight.  Top with cherry pie filling before serving.

BLUEBERRY BANANA CREAM CHEESE PIES

These are my favorites!

2 pie crusts, baked

3 bananas

1 8 oz package cream cheese

1 cup of sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 pkg Dream Whip.  (Dream Whip is a powdered whipped topping mix- you mix it with milk in an electric mixer.  You can also make these with half a tub of Cool whip, and I’m sure you could use whipped cream if you added a bit more sugar)

1 can blueberry pie filling

Slice the bananas into the bottom of the pie crusts, set aside.   The way I do it:  I prepare the Dream Whip according to the package directions, and then just add the cream cheese,  sugar and  vanilla and mix until smooth.  The way you are supposed to do it:  cream the cream cheese with the sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy, then mix in the prepared whipped topping (and I would do it this way if using Cool Whip or whipped cream.)   It all turns out fine.  Divide between the two pie crusts, chill overnight, and top with blueberry pie filling before serving.  Mmmmm good.
