This cherry cream cheese pie is one of my favorite dessert recipes for the Pie Iron. The recipe keeps it really simple so there is no preparation needed before-hand, which I love! It’s the perfect ending for the whole family after dinner.

Cherry Cream Cheese Pie

S’mores around the campfire are always a campfire dessert tradition but these cherry cream cheese pie desserts have become a family favorite. With only 6 ingredients the pies are easy to assemble using Pillsbury crescent rolls and cherry pie filling. This is definitely a recipe that kids can make and most really enjoy being able to create their own dessert.

We originally found this on a forum and decided to give it a try, we are happy we did!
