Of course, you can use homemade graham cracker crust (I add a sprinkle of cinnamon w/sugar and melted butter) and fresh fruit topping, but this is easy, can be made ahead (top w/pie filling right before serving) and soooo yummy!

I like to use "dessert pizza" toppings of sliced strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, a ring of kiwi slices, and glaze/brush entire top and fruit with either lightly warmed apricot/peach preserves or orange marmalade (can thin a bit if needed with 1-2 Tbs of water while warming). You can sprinkle pie filling or glazed top with sliced almonds.

Be sure to have a wet paper towel to wipe knife between cuts. Licking the knife clean then cutting the next slice is not suggested ;)

Creamy Cherry Cream Cheese Pie

1 ready-made graham cracker pie crusts or 1 chocolate wafer pie crust
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 (20 ounce) can cherry pie filling

In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth.
Add sweetened condensed milk, blending well.
Add lemon juice and vanilla until well blended.
Pour into pie crust and chill 3 hours, or until firm.
Add cherry filling on top of pie.
You can also use blueberry, or strawberry pie filling.

Here's a bunch of dessert pizza topping ideas
