Cherry Casserole

This recipe was handed down from my mom~I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

3 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
6 Tbsp. sugar
2/3 cup melted butter or margarine
**see note**

Combine all ingredients well and line a 9X13" pan. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Watch carefully, it burns easily. Allow crust to cool while you are making the filling

1 8oz brick of cream cheese, light okay-do not use fat free (it turns to liquid)
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 can Cherry Pie filling **you can use strawberry too~

Mix all ingredients well. Spoon over crust. Chill. Top with cherry pie filling. Chill until ready to serve.

**Instead of a crust, you could make these individually. Place 1 Nilla Wafer in a paper cupcake liner and fill with cream cheese mixture, then top with cherries or strawberries. I do this method when I take these to an event.
