1 - 8oz. Philadelphia cream cheese (softened)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 - 21oz. can Lucky Leaf cherry pie filling
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup Domino's powdered sugar

In a mixer add cream cheese--beat. Add vanilla and reserved 2 TBSP pineapple juice--beat. Remove bowl from mixer--add 1/4 cup of the drained crushed pineapple and 1/2 cup of the cherry pie filling--stir to mix. In a mixer add heavy cream and powdered sugar--beat until you get soft peaks. Add the cream mixture into the cream cheese mixture--stir until mixed. Spread the cream cheese mixture into the graham cracker crust. Spread the remaining cherry pie filling over the whole top, leaving 1" all the way around between the cherry pie filling and the outside of the crust.
