Here we have another great Nabisco
recipe. I searched and searched for a good recipe to feature this week. I found a couple several days ago, but I must have forgotten to bookmark them. Finally after searching several sites and finding nothing that I wanted to post, I ran across this delightful pie recipe. This pie is similar to other I've made, in that it's base is cream cheese and cool whip (always a good combination). It's tasty, a little on the light side (especially if you use reduced fat/sugar ingredients), and it's with white, red, and pink color scheme, it is perfect for Valentine's Day. And to top it off, it's very easy!
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
1 cup cherry pie filling
1 HONEY MAID Graham Pie Crust (6 oz.)
MIX cream cheese and sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in 2 cups of the whipped topping.
ADD pie filling. Cut through batter with knife several times for marble effect.
POUR into crust; spread with remaining whipped topping. Freeze at least 3 hours or overnight. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting into 8 slices.
-Fruit lovers can top this pie with extra pieces of fruit of fruit topping.
-Try this recipe using other kinds of pie feeling such as strawberry or blueberry.
-For kids, try topping with sprinkles and other decoration.
-For kids who aren't fans of cherry, try substituting something they do like, such as a favorite candy bar.
