How to Make a No Bake Cherry Cream Cheese Pie using Whipped Cream Topping
This recipe takes very little time to put together, and the majority of time will be chilling in the refrigerator.
I like to make this with a premade, graham cracker crust, but you can even make it crust-less directly in your pie pan.
On top of that, you only need a few common ingredients to make this recipe.
Tip: This is a great recipe to make for summer get togethers, but keep in mind it’s not intended to sit outside in the heat. Keep it refrigerated until it’s time to serve.

Cream Cheese Cherry Pie Ingredients
So, with just a few common ingredients you are well on your way to one of the best tasting no bake pies you’ve ever had! (at least, it is one of my family’s all time favorites)
- Cream Cheese
- Cool Whip
- Cherry Pie Filling
- Granulated Sugar
- Graham Cracker Crust
Cream Cheese: This is what gives our pie that rich and delicious creaminess. Use the block style, whipped cream cheese doesn’t produce the same results. I recommend whole fat, but you can use reduced fat if you prefer.
Cool Whip: You can use store brand whipped topping if you prefer. The results are delicious either way. Keep your Cool Whip in the freezer right up until it’s time to fold it into your other ingredients.
Cherry Pie Filling: Any brand cherry pie filling/topping will work. There are a few different styles to choose from, and you really can’t go wrong no matter which you pick.
Granulated Sugar: This provides the slight sweetness we need to balance all our other flavors. I find a quarter cup to be the perfect amount, but you can add or subtract a bit of sugar to suit your own tastes.
