The earliest recipe goes way back into the 1940s! And because it’s crazy delicious, it has been passed on from generation to generation.
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (softened)
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping (thawed)
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple (well drained)
1 cup maraschino cherries (chopped)
1-1/3 cups and 1 tablespoon chopped pecans
2 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crusts
In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese, condensed milk, and lemon juice. Using a spatula, gently mix in the whipped topping.
Gently mix in the pineapple, chopped cherries, and pecans. Pour the mixture into pie crusts and chill for 3 to 4 hours.
Slice and enjoy!
