who knew. i can bake!

well, i didn't really bake anything-but check it.
i made a pie!
it was pretty easy too, i am pretty dang proud of this beauty.

it is-blackberries (fresh from the farmers market), lavender, cool whip, cream cheese, raspberry jello powder, and some sort of syrup.

1. you cheat like me and get yourself a pre-made graham pie crust.
2. you soften 4 oz of cream cheese, and stir in 1/3 a cup of sugar. then fold in 2 cups of cool-whip.
3. spoon cream cheese/cool whip mixture into the bottom of pie crust (i didn't need all the mixture for a pre made crust, but you might for a homemade). next, i added about a pint and a half of the largest, juiciest, yummiest blackberries ever-tim say's pile them high! put in fridge to chill.
4. boil 3/4 cup of water add 3/4 cup of sugar and boil for two minutes.
5. in the mean time get ready 8 teaspoons (1/6 c.) of cornstarch and 2 tablespoons (1/8 c.) of cold water.
6. when two minutes is up, reduce heat and stir in cornstarch and water. continue to stir till it becomes thick and more clear. remove from heat and add 2 tablespoons of jello powder. stir.
7. totally optional, add a few sprinkles of fresh lavender to the syrup.
8. drizzle syrup over chilled pie crust/blackberries/cool whip mixture. and chill again.

9. ta-da, enjoy!
