Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 cups (168g) graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick, or 113g) unsalted butter, melted

Cheesecake Filling

  • 16 ounces (2 packages/454g) cream cheese, room temperature
  • ¾ cup (150g)granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • teaspoon kosher salt
  • cups (357g) heavy cream, room temperature
  • 12 ounce can cherry pie filling

Instructions

Crust

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together graham cracker crumbs and sugar.
  • Pour melted butter into the graham cracker mixture and mix together with a fork until all of the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  • Evenly divide the graham cracker mixture evenly between your parfait cups. (Approximately ¼ cup each.) Using your hand or a spoon, press the mixture firmly into the base of each cup.
  • Chill the crusts while you prepare the cheesecake filling.

Cheesecake Filling

  • In the bowl of a stand mixture fitted with a paddle attachment, add the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, and salt. Beat on medium speed until soft and smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Switch to the whisk attachment. Pour in heavy cream, and whisk on low speed to combine. Once combined, increase the speed to high, and continue to whisk for about 3 minutes, or until stiff peaks are formed.
  • Top each graham cracker crust with a layer of the cheesecake filling. (Approximately ½ cup each).
  • Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or until cheesecake filling is set. (You can also top the parfaits with cherry topping now, however it may bleed slightly into the cheesecake filling.)

Topping

  • After the cheesecake parfaits have chilled, top each with cherry pie filling. (Approximately ¼ cup each.)
