This recipe made my hungry Navy guests rave this past Christmas. So so easy and a flavorful crowd-pleaser. Just make sure you get all the chunks of cream cheese smoothed out! Read More

This was so fast and easy to put together while we all still await the infamous turkey! This even tastes great not frozen! We tried it with a Oreo Cookie pie crust-and Oh My-adds the extra nice addition to this pie! All the kids love it as so do us adults. Kudos to Cassie for this wonderful treat! Read More

I made this on a whim last year for something different and everyone loved it! It is the new "hit" dessert that is requested for holidays now. My husband and I keep the ingredients on hand during the winter months just to have for ourselves. Definitely will be a staple for years to come. Read More

When I made the Cranberry version I made homemade cranberry sauce instead of canned really added to the flavor. Read More

A former co-worker used to bring this to our pot lucks. When she left so did her cranberry pie. She alternated using a pre-made graham cracker or Oreo cookie crust based on what was on sale. Lastly her pie was garnished with walnuts or pecans. Again which depended on what she had on hand. She told us it was quick and easy to make but never shared her recipe. I came looking for a recipe to replicate her pie. This tastes just the same. I add nuts before freezing as a garnish and sometimes will mix then into the filling. The kids like the Oreo version best. I garnish with Oreo cookie crumbs. It makes a great nut free option. The pie tastes great and is always one of the first desserts to go when served. Love it. Read More
