A refreshing fruity no-bake summer pie!
  • 4 cups halved pitted sour or sweet cherries, fresh
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar, divided
  • ¼ cup plus 4 teaspoons water, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 pre-made 9×13″ graham cracker crust
  • 2 8-ounce packages reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups nonfat plain or vanilla Greek yogurt (Chobani)
  • 6 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Combine cherries, ½ cup sugar and ¼ cup water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch with 4 teaspoons water, then stir into the cherry mixture; return to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until the liquid thickens and looks syrupy, about 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  2. Beat cream cheese, yogurt, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary. Spread over the crust.
  3. Spoon the cherry mixture over the top. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 3 hours.
