My mom makes a recipe very very similar to this, but first she puts all the ingredients you listed (except the cherries, obviously) into the blender. This makes it super easy! The next ingredient, which your recipe does not include, which I think makes the pie - you fold in 1 large carton of cool whip before putting it into the pie crust and topping with the cherries. TRY IT! You will love it even more!
