Strawberry Pie

The other day I looked in the refrigerator and realized we had a ton of strawberries. 
After my sister begged and begged, I finally made strawberry pie!
And it was very delicious. Perfect for summer.

I used this recipe found via Kraft Foods.

2 cups fresh strawberries, divided
2/3 cup  boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
  Ice cubes
1/2 cup cold water
1 tub  (8 oz.) COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping, thawed
ready-to-use reduced-fat graham cracker crumb crust (6 oz.)

SLICE 1 cup strawberries; refrigerate for later use. Chop remaining berries; set side. Add boiling water to gelatin mix; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add enough ice to cold water to make 1 cup. Add to gelatin; stir until slightly thickened. Remove any unmelted ice.
WHISK in COOL WHIP. Stir in chopped berries. Refrigerate 20 to 30 min. or until mixture is very thick and will mound. Spoon into crust.
Getting ready to add in strawberries.

After being placed in the graham cracker crust. 
REFRIGERATE 6 hours or until firm. Top with sliced berries.

Final Step: Eat and Enjoy!! 

*Problem solver:After we refrigerated the pie for 1 day and 1/2 it was still kind of mushy, so we just placed it in the freezer for two hours or so and it turned out delicious.

What is your favorite summer dessert?
