This is a clipping from what looks to be from a full page promo for Borden’s cream cheese and condensed milk. The coupon at the bottom expired May 31, 1965 so this is at least 42 years old.
There is part of an ad on the back for a new Scout vehicle priced at $1690.85, it looks similar to a Jeep. Imagine buying a new vehicle today for that price!
The clipping is missing the left half of the page, so the main title only reads “Cream Cheese Pie”. The recipe is complete and presented below. I did space the instructions differently so that they would be easier to follow.
There’s no cooking.
Because you use Borden’s Eagle Brand Milk
and Borden’s Cream Cheese.
It’s rich with smoother, fresher tasting Borden’s Cream Cheese. And it’s easy, because Borden’s Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (the precooked blend of whole milk and sugar) cuts down on mixing time, cuts out cooking. Like the idea? You’ll love the results!

This is one of my favorite recipes. My mom has made it for years and it’s always a hit. We make the filling in our blender!
Thank you for the cherry of cream cheese pie recipe – am going to try it for Easter. :-)
Been looking for an easy cheese cake recipe and here it was. Thank you, it was great……..:)
My mother made Cherry O cream cheese pie the first time in 1963 or 64. We have loved it ever since! Thank you
I haven’t made this recipe since the 60s. I’m so glad to have found it on line. I have the picture from an old magazine but the recipe was missing. Can’t wait to serve it for my party.
My grandmother made this for us in the 60′s. It and pound cake were the staples of every holiday get together. I had misplaced my copy. Thanks
I was so glad to find this. this was one of the first things I made when I married in 1965. Thanks for the help
Thank you! I lost this recipe clip a long time ago. I’m so glad someone else could find it and put it online!
Glad to have found this recipe again. The first time I made this, the recipe was on the back of a Cherry Pie filling can. This Cherry Pie is absolutely the best ever!!! MMmmmmm:)
