Cherry Cheesecake Dip is a delicious and super easy dessert with a sweetened, cinnamon cream cheese base, cherry pie filling and is best served with pretzels, cookies or graham crackers for dipping.
Cherry Pie is my favorite kind of pie because the sweet and tart cherries just pop in your mouth and make every bite magical. Cheesecakes in my opinion need fruit, so combine pie filling and cheesecake is pretty much a no-brainer. Enter this deliciously creamy and super easy Cherry Cheesecake Dip! It’s the perfect dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth and it gives you all the flavors of a cherry cheesecake without any of the work.
HOW TO MAKE NO BAKE CHEESECAKE DIP
No Bake Cheesecake Dips are a perfect dessert for any season as they can be customized with just about any flavor you can think of. Topped with cherry pie filling is my current dessert obsession. The best part is you only need 6 ingredients to make this deliciousness happen!
- Cream cheese
- Salted butter
- Heavy whipping cream
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
Beat the ingredients together until they are fluffy and creamy. You can add a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor (I actually recommend it). The cinnamon is a small enough amount that it will enhance the flavor of the cheesecake dip and give it warmth, and it blends with the cherry surprisingly well. Spread that creamy goodness onto a shallow platter or pie plate and you’re good to go.
LET’S MAKE IS A CHERRY CHEESECAKE DIP!
You can then add all kinds of toppings; of course this is a Cherry Cheesecake Dip, so we need to add the cherry pie filling! I said this was easy and I meant it…just pour the cherry pie filling and spread it out evenly over the cheesecake base. I like to leave about an inch around the edges so you can sweet the sweet cream cheesecake filling peeking out below the cherry pie filling. Oh it just looks so delicious!

This is a dessert dip, so something more on the sweet side is pretty much a requirement for dipping. Here’s what I like to use:
- Graham Crackers
- Vanilla Wafers
- Baked pie crust pieces (roll our pre-made pie crust dough, slice, and bake!)
The Pretzel Crisps are my favorite as they provide a contrast of sweet and salty which is my favorite flavor combination. They are also flat which makes them perfect for dipping.

Tools used to make this No Bake Apple Pie Cheesecake Dip:
Clear Glass Pie Plate: For layered dips and desserts, a clear glass dish is a must so your guests can see all of the pretty layers and know what lies beneath.
Hand mixer – Helpful for beating the cream cheese, and also for shredding chicken. Love this brand because it’s got it’s own storage case to keep the beaters handy and the cord stowed away.
Silicone Spatula – Perfect for scraping the sides of the bowl and for spreading creamy dips.
