"I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[a] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms" Ephesians 1:17-20

Make sure your jars are clean and dry before starting.

For the graham crackers either crush 1 pkg in food processor or buy the crumbs already crushed (that's the easy way!)

After you have crumbs, melt 2 TB butter in a medium mixing bowl.

Add the graham cracker crumbs and 1 TB sugar. Mix together and set aside.

In another medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth.

Add sweetened condensed milk and beat for 3 minutes, scraping bottom as needed to make sure all the cream cheese is incorporated.

Add 1/2 tsp. Lemon juice and beat for another minute.

Time to fill your jars :)

Spoon 2 heaping tsps of graham cracker mixture into bottom of a clean glass jar

Next layer 2 TB of cream cheese mixture on top of graham cracker crust.

Next layer 2 TB of Cherry Pie filling on top. Spread around to coat top.

Spray a topping of Redi-whip on top of pie filing.

Smooth it with a spoon and repeat all layers, ending with the Redi-whip

Place lid on jar and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

These will keep for a couple of days if you want to make ahead of time.
