Happy Pi Day with French Cherry Pie : )

Hello Dear Friends! Today is happy PI Day!!!   

Ok, let's be clear on something.  I am definitely not one to celebrate Math.  As a matter of fact 6th grade Math and Science have recently become the bain of my very existence. Especially when John comes home from school and says "mom, I don't get this".... ugh.  I think we should have a happy GOOGLE day because without my best friend GOOGLE I would not be able to help my child learn the 6th grade curriculum. 
"Hey Google" is my new catchphrase!  I am not even joking ; ) 

Anywhoo, I am one to celebrate PIE (the real pie!) so here's a new recipe I just tried yesterday.  We actually ate this last night and thankfully there's still some leftover for tonight.
I can't wait for dessert time!  

I picked up this recipe from Pinterest.  It's called French Cherry Pie from a blog called Mom Endeavors. I chose to make it because this time of year I always crave cheesecake with cherries! Those flavors remind me of Springtime and Easter and that's what I'm feeling these days!  I didn't feel like going through the whole process of making a cheesecake and's Pi Day.

On her blog Sara says this was her husband's grandmother's recipe and also her hubby's favorite.  I can see why!  It's also a no bake recipe and comes together super quick.

I don't know what makes this pie French,  but regardless....I know it's DELICIOUS and super easy to make! I'm so glad I tried it!

There is still time for you to celebrate Pi Day if you want to whip this up today. 
Here's how easy it is:

1 can cherry pie filling
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 8 oz. container of Cool Whip
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 graham cracker crust

With and electric mixer blend cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Fold in Cool Whip. 
Spread onto crust. 
Top with cherry filling : ) 
Refrigerate 3-4 hrs. before serving


John kept saying "this taste just like cheesecake!" and it totally did! 

We'll take any excuse to have pie!

Even Math! : ) 

Next week is the first day of Spring! Can you believe it?!
I'm so ready! 

Have a wonderful day, friends! 
And please say an extra prayer for me as I guide John through converting fractions to decimals.  And why so many world problems? I hate the word problems!!!  

Bye! xoox
