Cherries in the Snow (aka The Best & Easiest No Bake Cherry Cheesecake EVER!)

I love my nail tech Rhonda - she's become a close friend and we talk about EVERYTHING. Around the holidays, she mentioned some recipes she was going to make and it took me about 2.5 seconds to beg for the recipes! 
She calls this one Cherries in the Snow - it's pretty much a super easy no-bake cherry cheesecake with a graham cracker crust. You are going to LOVE IT!! I have literally been craving it ever since I made it!!!!

What is Cherries in the Snow? 

Truly - it's a no bake cherry cheesecake. But I choose to think of it as a pie tin of heaven. Seriously - I promised my neighbors that I would take half the pie to them. I do my best to not eat every bite of everything I make - I want to still fit through the door! But let me tell you - after my first bite - I was regretting my generosity! 

How do you make Cherries in the Snow? 

It's super simple - you mix together cool whip, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla - pour it in the crust and top it with a can of cherry pie filling. 

The thing I like is that you can change it up to what you like! I used a chocolate cookie crust - but you could use a regular graham cracker crust or even a pecan crust. I used cool whip - but you could use dream whip. I used cherry pie filling but who says you can't have blueberries in the snow with blueberry pie filling?!

Just be sure you keep the cream cheese and powdered sugar in there - those are must have ingredients! This dish is also egg-free! 

This dessert is heavenly! I enjoyed every bite of the half of the pie that I kept for sure! If you're looking for other egg-free desserts - you could try these peanut butter & chocolate cheesecake bites, my Mom's famous peach cobbler or even some slow cooker cinnamon sugar pecans (you won't want to share those either)!
