Strawberry Parfait Pie

Servings: 6-8
This light and airy pie is a great summertime dessert. Tastes just like a parfait but in a graham cracker crust, and just right after a light meal on a warm day.

2/3 cup boiling water
1 package (4-serving size) Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
Ice cubes
1/2 cup cold water
1 (8 oz.) container non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1 (6 oz. size) ready-made store bought graham cracker crumb crust
1 cup sliced strawberries

Sliced strawberries

Stir boiling water into gelatin in large bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add enough ice cubes to cold water to measure 1 cup. Add to gelatin; stir until slightly thickened. Remove any unmelted ice.

Add whipped topping; stir until well blended. Stir in chopped strawberries. Refrigerate 20 to 30 minutes or until mixture is very thick and will mound. Spoon into crust.

Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight until firm. Top with sliced strawberries before serving. Store any leftover pie in refrigerator.

Makes 6-8 servings.
