strawberry heaven

i don't know if my mom made this up or found the recipe somewhere, but it's really good and REALLY easy. all you need is a small box of strawberry jell-o, a small box of instant vanilla pudding, some strawberries, and a small thing of cool whip. oh, and a graham cracker pie crust. or two. this recipe actually makes two pies, i forgot.


start by washing and slicing your strawberries.
put your package of jell-o in a bowl and dissolve with 3/4 cup of boiling water. stir for 2 minutes or until completely dissolved. then add 3/4 cup cold water and put in the fridge.

put your pudding in a bowl
and make according to package directions, only mix with just 1 1/2 (one and a half)) cups of milk.
whisk it really good, so it's not lumpy!
mmmm. there.
now mix your cool whip into your pudding until completely blended.
next, pour in your jell-o. this gets splashy, so wear an apron.
and mix.
pour your strawberries into your mixture, or else layer them in the bottom of your pie crust beforehand to make a more even placement of strawberries.
and mix gently.
this is really yummy. go ahead and take a taste.
now pour your mixture into your pie crust,
until it reaches the edges.
cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. once it's set you can decorate with additional cool whip and strawberries, or else just slice it and go for it people. it's good.

ellen's strawberry pie (a.k.a. strawberry heaven)

1 small pkg. strawberry jell-o
1 small pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1 small tub of cool whip
1 pkg. strawberries, cut into slices
2 graham cracker crusts

wash and slice strawberries. mix the jell-o with 3/4 cup of boiling water. once dissolved, pour in 3/4 cup cold water and refrigerate. make pudding according to package directions but only add 1 1/2 cups milk instead of 2. add in your cool whip and mix well with a hand mixer. add your jell-o next, mixing until completely combined. layer strawberries in the bottom of your crust or add directly to your jell-o mixture, then pour into crust. refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving. slice; devour.

Yes, it looks very easy, and I bet I could use sugar free jello and lite cool whip. Looks great! Do you care if I use one of your recipes here for the sister share sheet?
