Warm & Cozy Winter Recipes {Day 5}

Hey all!
Are you enjoying these great finds? Sometimes it is so hard to figure out what's for dinner, so I know first hand how exciting it can be to have something new! I hope these recipes will inspire you!

Sweet Cherrity Pie
(another magazine clipping from way back!)

1 c. all purpose flour
1/2 to 1 cup finely chopped nuts
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. cold butter or margarine
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 c. confectioners' sugar
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 c. whipping cream, whipped
1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling

Combine flour, nuts and brown sugar in a small bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Transfer to a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 375F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown, stirring once. Reserve 1/2 cup of crumb mixture for topping. Using a spoon, firmly press remaining crumbs into an ungreased 9-in. pie plate; chill. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and extract until smooth. Spread over crust. Fold the whipped cream into the cherry pie filling; spoon over cream cheese layer. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Refridgerate 1-2 hours before serving.


This is a great pie for the holidays! It is so creamy and rich! No one will refuse a slice!
I do not know why people buy prepared pies at the grocery store, when homemade is so much better tasting, easy to prepare, and extremely cheaper!
You will need a large bowl of vanilla ice cream for Day 6's recipe! :)
