No-Bake Strawberry Cream Pie
Make this cool, creamy dessert for your next picnic or cookout! It's a crowd-pleaser that won't heat up your kitchen.
Graham Cracker Crust
graham cracker crumbs
(9 sheets of graham crackers, pulverized)
Strawberry Cream Filling
packaged strawberry Jello
container Cool Whip
fresh strawberries, sliced
about 4 cups
For the Crust
Use a food processor or blender to pulverize the graham cracker crumbs.
Pour the crumbs into a bowl and add the ¼ cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and ⅓ cup melted butter. Mix.
Pour the crumb mixture into a 9-inch pie plate. Press into the bottom and up the sides of the plate.
Place in the refrigerator to chill.
For the Filling
Pour the strawberry Jello powder into a large heat-proof bowl.
Pour the ⅔ cup boiling water into the Jello and stir until the Jello is dissolved.
Add ½ cup cold water and ½ cup ice cubes. Stir until the ice cubes are dissolved.
If the Jello is runny, put it in the refrigerator to set up just until it barely starts to jiggle.
Add the entire tub of Cool Whip to the Jello. Fold in.
Add the sliced strawberries and fold in.
Transfer the filling into the graham cracker crust.
Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least six hours or overnight.
You can use store-bought crusts to save time, but all this filling won't fit in one of those shells! So if you use store-bought crusts, we suggest making two pies.
