Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream cold
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 21 oz can cherry pie filling approximately 1 1/2 cups
  • 6 graham crackers crushed

Instructions

Prepare

  • Add a 9x5" loaf pan to the freezer to chill.

Mix

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the softened cream cheese and beat with an electric hand mixer on MED speed until smooth and lump-free.
  • Add the cold heavy whipping cream and beat on MED-HIGH speed until light and fluffy, and stiff peaks form. **see Chef Tips note #2 for more information on stiff peaks**
  • Add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract, then gently fold together. This is most easily done with a rubber spatula and stirred gently in an over-under circular motion.

Assemble

  • Remove loaf pan from the freezer and pour in half of the whipped cream mixture.
  • Spoon half of the cherry pie filling over the top, then use a bamboo skewer, butter knife or toothpick to swirl the filling into the whipped cream mixture.
  • Add half of the crushed graham crackers, then top with remaining half of the whipped cream mixture.
  • Add remaining cherry pie filling and remaining crushed graham crackers, then use a bamboo skewer, butter knife or toothpick to swirl the top.

Freeze

  • Cover tightly with 2 layers of aluminum foil, and add to a freezer in a level spot. Freeze for at least 6-8 hours (overnight is best).

Serve

  • Scoop and serve as desired. Store leftovers in a freezer-safe airtight container.

Notes

  1. Recipe makes approximately 1.5 - 2 quarts, which I've estimated is 12 servings (1/2 cup per serving). Of course, feel free to break this up into as many (or as little) servings as you'd like.
  2. Stiff Peaks - When you turn the mixer upside down (with it OFF), so the beaters are facing up, the cream will stand up in a peak (like a little mountain), and not fold over onto itself. This is a great visual guide from Taste of Home.
  3. For the best storage, I recommend a container like this one (amazon link).
