DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve the contents of the large package of Strawberry Jell-o (you could use 2 packages of the normal size of jell-o if your store doesn't carry the big package) in two cups of boiling water. Add 1/2 cup sugar and 1 1/2 cups cold water and mix well.
  • Remove 2 1/2 cups of mixture and chill (keep the rest at room temp as you don't want it to chill and start to set).
  • When chilled mixture has partially set, add a pint of fresh strawberries, halved and sliced. Pour into a 6-cup mold (Emila used the classic tupperware ring mold).
  • Chill until set but not firm.
  • Beat 8 oz softened cream cheese, gradually adding reserved jello mixture plus 1 tsp vanilla. Spoon over strawberries in mold.
  • Chill at least 3 hours before serving.
  • Unmold to serve and place on a round serving platter.
