Strawberry Layered Dessert.

Made this the other night at the request of my husband! It is soooo yummy!

2/3 C. boiling water

2 C. Oreo Cookies, finely crushed (about 20 cookies)

1/4 C. butter melted

1 pkg, (3oz.) Jell-O Strawberry Flavor Gelatin

1 pkg. (80z) Philadelphia cream cheese, softened

1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip Whipped Topping, Thawed

1 lb. Strawberries, sliced

In a small bowl, stir boiling water in to dry gelatin and mix at least 2 Min. or until completely dissolved. Cool 5 min. stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, mix cookie crumbs and butter; press into 9-in. spring form pan. Set aside

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese on medium speed until creamy. Gradually add prepared gelatin mixture, beating well after each addition. Gently stir in 2 cups whipped topping. Divide mixture in half.

Top cookie mixture with half of gelatin mixture. Layer with 2 cups sliced strawberries over gelatin mixture and top with remaining gelatin mixture. Top with remaining Cool Whip.

Garnish with remaining strawberries or blueberries, if desired. It helps set up if you put it in the fridge for a while before serving! ENJOY!

New Pantry!

I have wanted a pantry for so long! My cupboards kept getting more and more stuffed full of food and it was driving me nuts! I felt so unorganized and would even go buy more of something I already had, because it got stuffed in the back of the cupboard. Thankfully my handy man husband came to the rescue! We converted the cupboard that we put our trashcan and broom in and made it the pantry! I feel so much more organized!!!
