My first Final Fantasy recipe and I am so happy it is a Blood Current Tart. This one was so easy and delicious. You'll want to take it on all your travels.
You will need:
1 (9 inch) (23 cm) prepared graham cracker crust
(I made my own crust with butter and crushed ginger snaps, for a little kick)
1 (8 ounce) (230 g) package cream cheese, softened (If you forgot to let it sit out for an hour, unwrap and place in microwave safe container and nuke it for 15 seconds.)
1/2 cup (100 g) white sugar
2 cups (560 g) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
In a medium mixing bowl, beat together softened cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.
Fold in whipped topping and blend until mixture is smooth.
(Folding is like gentle alternative to stirring. The whipped topping has had air mixed into it to make it light and fluffy. If you were to stir it or use a mixer is would beat out all the air & turn it watery. You want to mix the two ingredients together without losing the fluffiness.)

Cover with plastic wrap and chill 2 hours before serving.
