Ingredients

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust you make your own homemade if preferred
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg separated
  • 1 tsp almond extract if you prefer vanilla you can substitute with vanilla extract
  • 1 can cherry pie filling

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Prep your cookie sheet by place a sheet of parchment paper on top.

  2. Take 1 refrigerated pie crust and open it up on top of the parchment paper.

  3. In a bowl, add your cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk and almond extract. Use your hand mixer to mix until combined.

  4. Take the cream cheese mixture and smooth on top of the pie crust, leaving about 1 1/2 inches around the outside without the filling.

  5. Take your cherry pie filling and spread it on top of the cream cheese filling, leaving it off the outer 1 1/2 inch edge as well.

  6. Fold that 1 1/2 inch edge up on top of the filling. Work around until all the edges have been folded on top.

  7. Use the egg white and brush the crust edges.

  8. Bake in your preheated 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until the edges are started to turn golden brown.
