First of all, yes, this is a cheater pie made with cherry pie filling from a can. I love a homemade cherry pie, but we don't grow cherries in Louisiana so I buy canned filling and enjoy it. Very much.
I meant to take pictures of the pie at each step of the way, but I was so excited to complete the next step . . .
This pie was very well received by my family, and took barely any time to make.
Cherry Cream Cheese Pie
2 cups almond meal or almond flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tblsp coconut oil
8 oz cream cheese (low fat okay)
1 Tblsp sugar
1 can cherry pie filling
Put first 3 ingredients in food processor and pulse until dough forms a ball. Press into a 9 - 10 inch pie plate.
Put next 3 ingredients in food processor and blend. Pour and scrape into crust. It doesn't matter if some crust crumbs get on this layer, since it will be covered by the cherries.
Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 - 20 minutes. Top will be cracked and slightly golden.
Spread pie filling on top.
