Cream Cheese Jelly Berry Pie

I’ve never seen a pie like this.

 A graham cracker crust, a jell-o layer, and a cream cheese layer.

All in a pie.

Fresh strawberries are arranged on the baked graham cracker crust before a layer of jell-o was poured over it. The jell-o would set and hold the strawberries in place. Then, a layer of cream cheese filling gets frosted over it.  

And boy, what a creamy creamy cream cheese filling that was.

By blending an instant pudding mix into the cream cheese, this was not only fuss free but was also tasty. We all know how delicious those pudding mixes are right?

And if you think that’s where it ends, u’ve got another thing coming. Beside the instant pudding mix, a whole can of condensed milk also goes into the cream cheese. Yes, you read that right, a whole can. A pretty bold but befitting move, for not only does the condensed milk add on to the creaminess of the cream cheese but also was able to sweeten it without the grittyness that powdered sugar has.  

And I think i might just have found myself a favourite cream cheese filling recipe.
