Cream Cheese Pie

This no-bake pie has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember.  When you tell someone the recipe you HAVE to say "the juice of one lemon" like you're cooking it in a big kettle over a fire in the woods.  It's tradition.

1 pre-made graham cracker crust
8-oz cream cheese
14-oz sweetened condensed milk
the juice of one lemon
1 can cherry pie filling (optional)

- Let cream cheese come to room temperature
- With electric mixer blend cream cheese, milk and lemon juice until smooth
- Pour into graham cracker crust
- Chill until set (about four hours)
- Top each slice with a spoon of cherry pie filling (optional)
