This recipe came From Ida (I do believe it’s a Taste of Home recipe) on my Facebook page when I asked for pie suggestions. I am lucky enough to have two!!! dinners this weekend where I am not cooking and needed to bake two pies to take along. One person hinted that he loved baked cream cheese for dessert so when I saw this recipe, I knew it was the one!

So thanks again Ida!!

I will update it with slice pictures as we eat, I didn’t really want to pre-slice the pie before we took it over for dinner, though knowing me, they’d understand why they had a mangled pie!

Whenever I take this pie to a holiday party, potluck supper or bake sale, I take along copies of the recipe, too—I’m sure to be asked for it. With the pie’s very rich taste, even a sliver is satisfying!

6-8 ServingsPrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 65 min.


1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

    Stunning! Love the name and cannot wait to see how it looks inside – though, knowing you – everyone was caught up in the eating and there wasn’t any left to photograph!
