Cherry Breeze Pie

cherry breeze pie

This is a pie that my mom would make us when I was growing up.  It was a favorite of mine.   I still love cherry breeze pie, but I rarely make it (maybe once a year) because I end up eating half of the pie (or more) myself.   I can’t afford that kind of caloric luxury.  The creamy tartness of the filling with the sweetness of the cherry pie filling and graham cracker crust is just heaven and takes me back to my childhood every time.  It is super easy to make.
