  • ½ cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract


  • 1 cup cherry pie filling, divided



  • In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter, mixing well with a fork. (You want every crumb coated in the butter as this will be the glue that holds it together.) If needed, add more butter.


  • In a medium bowl, add cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, and vanilla. Use a hand mixer to combine.


  • Press half of the graham cracker crust to the bottom of a pint mason jar.
  • Add half the cheesecake filling to the jar, filling about ¾ of the way up.
  • Top with half the cherry pie filling. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  • Place the jars of cheesecake in the refrigerator to chill for a minimum of 2 hours, up to overnight.
