And then, with Father writing down a recipe (Pic 2), your adventure to the great unknown called "independence", begins...
But don't fret young one. If I could do it (after learning what a hand mixer is and how to use it) you can too.
This is my first instructable so please feel free to comment if you think something could be improved.
Step 1: Ingredients
1 pre-prepared 9" chocolate crumb crust. I just used a store bought one, but use whatever you'd like.
1/2 cup of sugar. Warning - keep away from children, trust me.
8 oz of softened cream cheese.
21 oz (or so) can of cherry pie filling.
1/2 cup of white chocolate chips. Also known as white baking chips.
1 tablespoon of milk. Use water if you're lactose intolerant.
You will also need;
a hand mixer (knowledge of use helps).
2 mixing bowls.
a pan for melting the chips in
and a stove top, to melt the chips. Or a microwave, but then you don't need a pan.
But maybe the most important ingredient is in pic 2.
Step 2: Step 1
Then blend with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy.
Now that you have this sugary cheesy goodness, split evenly into 2 bowls. (e.g. put half in your other bowl and leave half in this one).
Step 3: Step 2
Blend well with your hand mixer until it is a nice mix like the photo;
Step 4: Step 3
Step 5: Step 4
If you are using a pan and stovetop make sure you stir continually until it melts. Don't want to end up burning it!
Step 6: Step 5
Add melted chips to your other mixing bowl of cream cheese and sugar. Blend well with the hand mixer.
