Cream Cheese Pie

For Labor Day weekend, we went up to our friends new house for a barbeque. They provided the meats (her husband makes some awesome bbq chicken) and asked us to bring a side. I had pasta salad all ready to go but I was craving something sweet. This recipe came together in less than 10 minutes and even though we didn't refrigerate it right away it still tasted amazing! It reminds me of my mom's cheesecake.

I got this recipe from Allrecipes.com. As usual, I read the reviews and added another package of cream cheese. It helps to cut down on the sweetness from the condensed milk.

16 oz cream cheese
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 9 inch prepared graham cracker crust
2 cups cherry pie filling, or other fruit (optional)

Cream together cream cheese and condensed milk until smooth. Add lemon juice and blend well. Pour into graham cracker crust. Top with fruit, if using, and chill for 2 hours before serving.
