No-Bake Strawberry Cheese Pie.

I suppose a big apologize is in order... so sorry if anyone had been expecting more posts, I know I said I would be posting frequently but lately I've also been seriously working on my MS and editing and proofreading and sometimes I don't get enough time to edit-read-cook and post. Still I hope you can all forgive and enjoy the following mouth watering sugar rush recipe.

I saw this recipe in foodgawker (obviously) and HERE you can find the original recipe. 

I would have said that this recipe was seriously sugary, even for me. And that's like saying a lot. But... do to the current mood I am in I will say: You should probably add more sugar to induce the happy-hormone liquid thing. 

Okay so enough boring you with my mood and me wanting to add sugar to everything in order to feel better. Let's get on with this: 

1/4 cup of cornstarch. 
2 1/4 cup of sugar goodness. 
1/2 cup water.
1/4 of strawberries 
2 or 4 blackberries. 
1 stick of butter. 
1 package of graham crackers 
(otherwise known as Maria) 
1 big package of cream cheese. 
(Use light and I'll personally hunt you down and kill you. Live a little will ya?) 
1 tsp of vanilla.

Okay here goes: 

First you mix the cornstarch with the water, berries and 3/4 cup of sugar. 
(Now, usual me wants me to tell you that you should probably add half of that. Right Now me screams: MORE SUGAR)

And you want to cook this in medium heat until it thickens. 

Oh you also want to stir constantly just get all the ingredients together. Otherwise you'll end up with lumps of cornstarch and that's not a pretty sight now is it? 

Meanwhile! You crunch the crackers and mix it well with the stick of butter. 
And then place it on the nice bowl you want to put the rest of the pie in. 

Then you and I are going to work that spatula. Because the next step is mix 1 1/2 cup of sugar with the cream cheese and add the vanilla and work that spatula until there are (almost) no lumps. 
Work it baby! Work it!

Just you know mix it at a break your arm speed. That'll probably do the trick. 

Okay, next step. Pouring the cream cheese filling into the nice pretty bowl we already placed the crackers mix in. 
And then, we add the berry mixture (which has to be cold of course) and we open the fridge and let the pie chill for a while. 
 n.n and there you go as simple as that.
