"Strawberry Graham Dessert"

originally from Taste of Home magazine.
I made some modifications.
I'll probably re-name it.
Strawberry whip cream pie? Strawberry whip cream cheese dream? Strawberry cream cheese pie? Strawberry icebox pie? That famous strawberry thing Bobbie makes......
I'll work on it.

melt two tablespoons of butter and mix with the crumbs of 16 graham crackers. Pat into a 8 x 8 pan (I used a cake plate) and bake at 350 for 10-14 minutes. Let cool.

Meanwhile. Pour one cup boiling water into strawberry jello and add a small container frozen strawberries with juice. Let sit in fridge for at least 2 hours while it firms up.

 Mix a 1/2 block of soft cream cheese (next time I'm using the whole block) into half a cup of powdered sugar and a tablespoon vanilla. Fold in cool whip.
Or.... next time Im putting the cream cheese on the bottom and the whip cream on top?

Put half the mixture on the crust and refrigerate two hours while you take a nap do other important and productive things.

After two hours, everybody is ready to be introduced. Add the set jello. Slice some additional strawberries and add on top.  Next time I'm adding a lot more fresh strawberries throughout.

Add the rest of the cream cheese/whip cream mixture and try to keep your husband out of it before you take it to the dessert social at church. Recipe says it should be refrigerated overnight. The empty pie plate I brought home says its good even if you don't.
