Cherry Pie
Ingredients:
1 ½ cups Graham cracker crumbs
1 stick margarine (or butter)
8 oz. cream cheese (room temperature)
2 teaspoons milk
1-cup confectioner’s sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
½ pint whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 can cherry pie filling

Directions:
Pre heat oven to 325 degrees

Melt butter or margarine in saucepan.  Once melted, add graham cracker crumbs.  Press in bottom of oblong baking dish.  Bake 15 minutes.  Chill.

In large mixing bowl using a hand mixer cream the cream cheese, milk and sugar until well blended.  Spread on top of graham cracker crust.  Sprinkle chopped nut on top of cheese mixture. 

In mixing bowl whip cream until stiff and add vanilla, mix thoroughly.  Spread whip cream over nuts.  Chill for 2 to 3 hours.  Spread cherry pie filling over whip cream layer.  Let chill over night.  Cut into squares and lift out with spatula.


Notes From Paula’s Test Kitchen:  Pie never became really firm.  However will slice clean. On our second test, we increased the cream cheese by 4 oz. and vanilla by ¼ teaspoon.  We made our pies in individual 6” round springform pans.  Pie was firm with simple flavors and was presented beautifully in the little round shape.

Interesting Side Note From The Food Editor:  Since this recipe was originally handed down by Miss Georgia 1965 we decided to style this dish on a china pattern of my grandmothers.  A beautiful light blue band with gold trim around the plate. Purchased new in Moberly, MO in 1965.

Paula, This trick with a bell pepper always works: Place your thumb ove the stem of the bell pepper and push down to the center of the bell pepper. Amazing, the stem and seeds come out and the bell pepper is clean. Pat Yarborough Jacksonville, Fl

Paula, I love watching you and your family. I miss seeing your show, I watched you everyday. My son lives in Charleston S.C. He took me to the Lady & Sons to eat. Oh my goodness! People are always telling me that I look just like the cooking lady Paula Deen. I always tell them that you are my hero. May God Bless You Mary Ann

Add a few spoonfuls of parmesan cheese to the flour and cornmeal breading and it kicks the tomatoes up another notch. Bev

I just bought Paula's Peach Salad Dressing and wondered if anyone has a good recipe that they use it in?
