No Bake Layered Cherry Pie

In this post I’m sharing how to make an easy No Bake Layered Cherry Pie.

When I was a teenager my grandmother came to live with us. She didn’t do much cooking at that point in her life but I remember that one of her favorite desserts to take to church potlucks was a no bake cherry cheesecake.

It was the mix type of cheesecake topped with cherry pie filling. It was good but I think she’d love this layered cherry pie even more and it has real cream cheese in it.

This no bake dessert is a luscious layered creamy fruit pie. I’ve made it with cherry but you could really choose to use any fruit pie filling that you prefer.

It is so delicious, just add a bit of whipped cream on top if you like and I do like.

It takes just SIX simple ingredients to make this no bake cherry pie dessert. When I say simple ….like one of the ingredients is a store bought graham cracker pie crust. 

Here’s what you’ll need (I’ve got exact measurements and all the details in the recipe card further down in this post): pie filling, graham cracker pie crust, cream cheese, milk, vanilla pudding and Cool Whip.

Do you have to cook canned pie filling? No, canned pie filling can be used as topping without cooking. 

What size graham cracker pie crust do I need? The larger size, with two extra servings works perfectly for this cherry cheesecake pie.

What is the best way to cut a slice of no bake pie so the pie crust doesn’t crumble? I pop this pie into my freezer for 15 minutes before slicing and it does help keep the slices as nice as possible. Just don’t forget the pie in the freezer.

Prep Time 5 minutes

  1. Spread half of the cherry pie filling into the bottom of the graham cracker pie crust.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with a mixer until fluffy.
  3. Slowly add the milk into the cream cheese while beating to combine.
  4. Next, add the vanilla pudding mix and combine with the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Fold in half of the Cool Whip with the cream cheese mixture gently to combine.
