Strawberry Layer Dessert

This is a recipe we normally make with peaches with a few adaptations. However, since my hubby is a peach snob and only likes them when they are freshly picked off our trees, we have to dream about the peach dessert. So, this strawberry dessert had to step up to the plate and be the star this spring.

Strawberry Layer Dessert

Make a crust consisting of the following ingredients and press into a 9x13 pan:
3 c. crushed graham crackers
1 stick of butter, melted

Set the pan aside

In a saucepan boil together:
2 c. water
2 T cornstarch
1 small package of strawberry Jell-o

1 c. sugar once it has boiled for a few minutes

Stir in
5-6 cups of strawberries, sliced

Let this mixture sit while you make the next cream cheese mixture.

Cream Cheese Mixture:
1/2 c. powdered sugar
8 oz. cream cheese

Combine the above and then add:

1 12 oz. container of cool whip

Now, the assembly:

First we mentioned the graham cracker crust. On top of it, add the cream cheese mixture. Then finally add the Strawberry Mixture.
Place in fridge and let chill for at least 3 hours.
