Berry Tart ( Quick)

I posted a Brunch Berry Tart recipe two years ago and decided to make it again, modifying it to a semi home-made version that didn't take as much time. :)
Ingredients:
A frozen pie crust
Filling A
8 oz cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
1 t vanilla essence
Filling B
Frozen of fresh berries
1/4 cup sugar
2 T corn starch 
 1/2 c water

Steps
Prick the pie crust, and bake it for 2 minutes.
Using a hand-mixer, beat all the Filling A ingredients.
Add it the the pie crust and continue to bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow it to cool. For For fun, you can drizzle a little caramel :)
Puree the berries and sugar with a blender.

Mix the corn starch and water in a pot and place it on the stove.
Add the berries puree into a pot with the corn starch mixture.
Heat it for several minutes, until thicken.
Cool it down. If short on time, place in a pan of cold ice or refrigerator.

Pour it over the pie crust...and decorate with berries! :)
If you have more time and want to make the crust from scratch...check out this Brunch Berry Tart recipe.
Side thought: I just came back from church and the pastor talked about attitude and choices in life. There are always two sides to everything and we need to look at the positive side to gain good results. Two men were looking out of the prison- one saw mud, and the other saw stars. We are never too old to learn and grow, and to keep trying. One day, everything will make sense but we have to start from within ourselves to make the choices that will affect out life momentarily, and eternally.

God bless :)
