Super easy to make Cherry Cheesecake Dip plus an easy recipe to make your own Cinnamon Pie Dippers. All in less than 15 minutes!
So I’ll admit it to the world, I’m a cherry pie fanatic. You can browse through my blog and find a multitude of recipes that use cherry pie filling.
I can’t help myself, it’s just so darn good. If was socially acceptable to just eat it out of the can for dinner I would totally be that person.
If we’re being honest here I totally am THAT person on a pretty regular basis. If I open a can I cannot stop myself from eating half of it before it gets used for its intended purpose.
Personally I think cherry pie filling should be a food group. Not even kidding. I fully support this idea if anyone wants to start a petition about that. I’ll totally hop on board that cause.
I whipped this up one weekend when I had a house packed with young hooligans. I knew I had to make something fun to go along with it. Shoving graham crackers on a plate was not going to cut it.
Any time I think of cherries my mind jumps to pie. I can’t help myself. So I knew I wanted to make something pie-esque for dipping. So the pie dippers were an easy leap.
Since I always love a good excuse to pull out my cookie cutters I decided to use tiny hearts. That way I opened the door to lots of crazy jokes and inappropriate songs about love gone wrong.
That’s how we roll here. No joke is off limits. That’s part of the fun of having older kids. You can have a twisted sense of humour and it’s okay. Or you can have a totally twisted sense of humour and it’s even better!

- 1 package of pillsbury pie dough
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon milk
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
- 1 L Cool Whip
- 198 grams Marshmallow Fluff
- 540 ml cherry pie filling
- 2 tablespoons graham crumbs
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Roll out both pie crusts on a lightly floured surface.
- In a small bowl whisk together the egg and milk till smooth and light in colour. Brush on the top side of each pie round. Then sprinkle both the cinnamon and nutmeg over top. Use more or less depending on your own taste.
- Use small cookie cutters to cut shapes, or use a pastry wheel to cut strips or squares, about the size of a small cracker or cookie. Place each shape on the cookie sheets about ½ inch apart. They do not spread like cookies so you can place them fairly close together. Place in the oven and bake for about 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of your shapes. Smaller will cook for less time, larger ones will cook for a longer time.
- Remove from oven and cool on a baking rack.
- Place the softened cream cheese in a stand mixer and using the whisk attachment mix until it's fluffy and smooth. Now add the cool whip and fluff to the mixer and whip on high until thoroughly combined.
- Pour the cheesecake mixture into a pie dish and smooth out.
- Pour the cherry pie filling over top and spread out evenly.
- Sprinkle some graham crumbs over top.
- Chill for an hour if you have enough patience to wait to munch on this.
- Serve with a big old cherry loving smile!
