This “secret” recipe is so easy, you won’t believe how good it is. You can use a store bought graham cracker crust or use my recipe.
1 graham cracker crust. if you are making mine, its easy. about 2 cups graham cracker crumbs. 1tsp. cinamon. (or just crush cinnamon graham crackers) 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 stick real butter melted and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. mix and press into pie pan. bake for 10 min in 375 degree oven. crust must be completely cooled before filling.
1 8oz pkg cream cheese, softened * 1 box french vanilla ( or cheesecake flavor) instant pudding mix, 1 cup milk, 1 8 oz container french vanilla cool whip, 1 can your favorite cherry pie filling.
Whip softened cream cheese til smooth and creamy. Reduce speed of mixer to low adding milk slowly, alternating with dry pudding mix til both are added. Continue beating til thick and creamy. ( another minute or two) now fold in 1/2 container french vanilla cool whip. Once blended, pour into graham cracker crust. The pudding mixture will be thick. Refrigerate for at least an hour. Just before serving, top with the rest of the cool whip, then spoon the can of cherry pie filling evenly over the top.
Another option, just after removing from refrigerator, cut the cheesecake into individual pieces, and place each on a dessert plate. Remember to top with cool whip and spoon pie filling over each piece for a more formal affect.
OH yeah!!!!! This is as yummy as it looks!! Easy too!
I use the cheese cake filling recipe from the cherry cheesecake. Use your favorite cake pieces, such as Angel food cake, white cake, yellow cake, or pound cake, cut into small pieces. Now spoon a few tablespoons of the cheesecake filling mixture into a tall glass or dessert cup. Next, a few cake pieces,( how many depends on the size of the pieces) then fresh strawberries, sliced or quartered. Cover this with several tablespoons of Wicks strawberry pie filling and glaze. I only use Wicks, you can use whatever brand you prefer. Now start the layers again with the cheesecake filling mixture, cake pieces, strawberries, glaze, and cool whip. Continuing until cup is filled. You can do this in a small trifle bowl. I prefer the individual servings, as shown in the pic above.
A favorite with my kids and their friends. Very easy for busy moms!
1 refrigerated pie crust (not frozen) * 1 12- 16 oz bag of frozen vegetables *3 or 4 large potatoes * 2 cans of cream of chicken soup * 1 1/2 lbs. skinless boneless chicken breast meat *** preheat oven 375 degrees
First peel and cube about 3 large potatoes. In just enough water to cover potatoes, Boil just til tender, not mushy, and set aside, keeping the water.
Next cube about 1 1/2 lbs. of skinless, boneless chicken breast meat. Cut into nice sized pieces, maybe about an inch. Cover bottom of skillet with a little oil, not too much, you are not actually frying this chicken… place chicken in skillet and cover, cook on low heat til no longer pink. This doesn’t take as long as you might think. Cooking too long just makes it rubbery and tough, so keep a close eye on it.
As soon as it is cooked through, add the potatoes and water. Add 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, a 12-16 oz bag of frozen mixed vegetables. mix well all ingredients. The soup should make a nice gravy. Pour into a large crock pot and cover with a refrigerated type, pie crust. I have used the name brand and the store brands. Most are just fine. I do not use the frozen ones, they don’t seem to do as well. place just the removable part of the crock pot, in a regular oven, on 375 degrees til the crust is brown, usually takes about 1/2 an hour.
Tender and juicy and easy as pie!!! Simply sear on the grill for about 30 min. then place in crock pot and cover with your favorite sauce, and cook on low for 3 hours.
My suggestions for turning a store bought sauce into your very own, drizzle a little molassis over the ribs in the crock pot, a little brown sugar sprinkled on top of that…..then mix with your BBQ sauce a 1/4 to 1/2 cup applebutter, and make sure you are cooking on low.
These are fall off the bone tender and since you grilled them the meat has that smokey taste that we all love so well….. charcoal works well, but a gas grill and hickory chips works great too!
