Donkey Pie


Actually, it’s CREAM CHEESE PIE

This recipe came from a great friend who we originally met in Delaware, and who we visited in Atlanta.  We ate this pie and absolutely LOVED it.  So I’m sharing it with a few of my good friends.  Enjoy.


12-14 graham crackers, crushed

1/2 cup butter, melted

1/3 cup powdered sugar

Combine and press into 9" pie pan


12 oz cream cheese

2 eggs, beaten

3/4 cup sugar

2 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup lemon juice (OR 1/4 cup Kahlua – YUMMMY!!!)

Beat together and pour into crust.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.  Remove from oven for 5-10 minutes then add:


1 cup sour cream

3 1/2 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp vanilla


Pour topping over pie and bake 10 minutes longer.  Refrigerate 5 hours before serving.  Actually, it’s better on the 2nd or 3rd day (if you can wait that long).

So why is this post titled "Donkey Pie"?  Here’s why.  This pie is good enough to be full payment for the VERY cute donkey
