I'm looking for a dessert recipe that calls for a graham cracker crust, cherry pie filling, and has a cool whip/cream cheese mixture for the top.

Funny, you should ask as I am making the exact same pie right now.
Mix it altogether and pour into a ready made Graham Cracker crust
Refrigerate a few hours(I like to make mine a day ahead)
Voila! Best darn cheesecake you have tasted and no fuss, no bake.

Here you have the Cherry Pie Dessert Recipe:
Let cherries sit in juice with 1/4 cup sugar for 2 hours. Drain juice off cherries into a saucepan. Soften gelatin in the cherry juice. Mix in egg yolks and salt. Cook on low heat, stirring constantly, for 4 minutes, until gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in almond extract, red food color, and cherries. Chill until thick, but not coagulated.
In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Fold into cherry mixture. Fold in whipped cream until no streaks remain. Pour into graham cracker crust. Chill in refrigerator.
I hope it will be helpful.
When I was in the store recently, I saw a tub of Philadelphia Cream Cheese that was already sweetened for a pie. It is a nice size tub. All you have to do is put the mixture in a purchased graham cracker crust. Then you put on the pie filling on top. Talk about easy? Super!
My brother makes something called a Cherry Yum Yum maybe you can find it on allrecipes.com or here in thriftyfun. I don't have time to look it up, but it is wonderful and you can substitute the cherries with pineapple. Both are delicious.
Good Luck (11/27/2006)
There's too many recipes for cherry yum YUM. As a child my aunt Judy made this holiday favorite. Did she use dream whip? What about lemon juice? I guess I'll try it all. I'll let you know. (11/21/2007)
