  2. Add cold water and chill until slightly thickened.
  3. Meanwhile, slice strawberries, reserving a few for garnish and sprinkle with sugar.
  4. Fold whipped topping into gelatin, blending well.
  5. Fold in strawberries.
  6. Place 9 graham crackers in bottom of 9-inch square pan.
  7. Spread half the gelatin mixture over crackers.
  8. Repeat layers.
  9. Chill until firm, approximately 3 hours.
  10. Cut into squares.
  11. Garnish with reserved strawberries.

My children plowed through the whole dish! Really good, easy dessert. My only caution is to make sure the gelatin is quite thick before folding in the cool whip. Thanks, KathyIBel, for a great kid-friendly dessert!
