Chocolate Cheese Pie

From: An old index card

1 8-oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1 3-oz pkg cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chilled whipping cream
8-inch packaged crumb crust
Cherry pie or peach pie filling

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixer bowl combine cream cheese and sugar; beat well. Blend in cocoa, scraping sides of bowl and beaters frequently. Add eggs and vanilla; blend well. Blend in whipping cream. Pour into crust. Bake 35-40 minutes. Center will be soft but will set upon cooling. Cool to room temperature. Cover and chill several hours or overnight. Garnish with pie filling.

Just the way I like it - simple and delicious! Thumbs up! Classic recipe for a potluck or having friends over for dinner. I'll definitely be making this again in a pinch!

P.S. The recipe name "Chocolate Cheese Pie" is NOT my creation. A chocolate cheese pie sounds pretty disgusting in my opinion. But trust me, that's what it's called.
