July 4th Dessert: Berried Treasure



Found this gem of a recipe on Pinterest (shocker, I know), and am now planning to make it for our July 4th celebration dessert!

Berried Treasure

Crust:
1.5 cups of crushed graham cracker crumbs (equals 1.5 sleeves of graham crackers crushed)
1/2 c sugar
1/3 c butter, melted
**Or you could take the lazy way out, like I am, and buy a pre-made graham cracker pie crust**

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Press firmly in a 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 8 minutes at 350. Cool.

Filling: 
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 c sugar
2.5  c + 2 T cold milk
16 oz Cool Whip, thawed
1 pint strawberries, halved
1 pint blueberries
6.8 oz instant vanilla pudding

Beat cream cheese with sugar and 2 T of milk until smooth. Fold in half of the Cool Whip. Spread this over the cooled crust. Arrange berries on top. Mix pudding and remaining 2 c milk, beat until smooth. Pour pudding mixture over arranged berries and chill for several hours or overnight. Spread with remaining Cool Whip before serving. Enjoy!

**Note: I will buy 2 pie crusts and divide berries and the pudding mixture between them**
