  • cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted butter

Filling:

  • 1 - 48 g (1 5/8 oz) envelope of dessert topping mix (such as Dream Whip), made according to package directions
  • ½ lb (250g) cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 1 cup icing sugar (aka confectioner’s sugar or powdered sugar)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla

Topping:

  • 1 – 540ml can cherry pie filling

Instructions

Base:

  1. In medium-sized bowl mix graham cracker crumbs and sugar together. Mix in the melted butter.
  2. Press mixture into lightly greased 9” square pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

In clean bowl of stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the cheese and icing sugar together. Beat in the vanilla.
