Perfect Cream Cheese Pie Recipe

The first time I experienced this Cream Cheese Pie, it felt like a direct voyage to dessert bliss. The filling’s creamy tanginess, coupled with the crust’s crisp texture, was a harmonious delight. My grandmother’s joyous expression, as she witnessed us relish every bite, was a testament to the magic she’d crafted.


2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup sugar

1 prepared graham cracker crust

For the Topping:

1 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C).

In a large mixing bowl, blend the softened cream cheese, eggs, sugar, and vanilla until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Gently pour the filling into the graham cracker crust, ensuring an even spread.

Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until the pie’s edges are firm while the center remains slightly jiggly.

As the pie bakes, prepare the topping by mixing the sour cream, sugar, and vanilla in a separate bowl until smoothly combined.

Once the pie is baked, carefully layer the sour cream topping over the warm filling.

Return the pie to the oven, baking for an additional 10 minutes.

After baking, allow the pie to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight, for the pie to set fully.

Serve chilled and revel in the indulgence.

Embrace the opportunity to create unforgettable moments with this Perfect Cream Cheese Pie, a dessert that promises to enchant and delight with every single bite.
