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!
now mix your cool whip into your pudding until completely blended.
next, pour in your jell-o. this gets splashy, so wear an apron.
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.
