homemade vanilla extract
+ 1 Tbsp
powdered sugar *
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth.
Add the butter and beat again. This can also be done in a food processor if you have one. It's harder to get the cream cheese and butter silky smooth in a mixer.
Add the vanilla, cinnamon, and sea salt and beat again.
Add the powdered sugar a little at a time, beating after each addition.
Spoon into the crust. Make sure that the crust is completely cool. Smooth the top and put in fridge to chill for at least 6 hours.
When ready to serve, top with cherry pie filling, or any other fruit or pie filling of your choice.
* to make powdered sugar, put 1 cup sugar in blender and process until powdered.
