Vintage Cherry Cheese Pie

Vintage Cherry Cheese Pie



  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Prepare pie crust. Line unbaked pie crust with parchment paper and weigh it down with pie weights or dry beans. Pre-bake crust for 5-10 minutes or until edges start to golden. 
  3. Remove crust from oven and place cherry pie filling in shell. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from oven to cool slightly. 
  4. While cherry pie is baking, beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla until smooth and creamy.
  5. Lower oven temperature to 350°F.
  6. Pour cream cheese mixture on top of cherry filling. Return to oven and bake for an additional 30 minutes. If pie crust edges start to brown, cover with aluminum foil. 
  7. Remove from oven and let cool. 
  8. Top with Creme Chantilly if desired and refrigerate until served.
