Blackberry Cream Cheese Pie

If you have avoided making pies because you do not want to deal with making a pie crust, this recipe is for you.  The crust is an oatmeal crust that you pat into the pan.  Oatmeal crust, cream cheese layer and fresh berries, what a combination.  This recipe could be adapted to any berry, such as, strawberries, red raspberries, and blueberries.  Equally delicious and easy.
