Layered Strawberry Gelatin Cheesecake

{Don't forget to enter the CSNstores.com giveaway! It ends tonight at midnight!}

I've had strawberry pretzel jello salad at several of my hubby's family functions and yum, I love it.
I've never made it myself before, but decided to give it a try in a pie version for Sunday night.

It reminds me a little of strawberry cheesecake...

Want to give it a try? Here's how I made it...
Layered Strawberry Gelatin Cheesecake

For the whole pie you need:
1- ready made graham cracker crust pie shell
4 oz cream cheese
8 oz cool whip topping, divided
1/2 sugar
3 oz strawberry gelatin pack
1 cup water
2 cups frozen strawberries

{Cheesecake layer}

4 oz cream cheese
4 oz cool whip topping, divided
1/2 c white sugar

Cream together cream cheese, 4 oz of cool whip and sugar, fill pie shell half way with mixture. Smooth up evenly along all sides of shell to cover all of the shell. Cover and Chill in freezer for 10-15 minutes until firm.

{Strawberry Gelatin Layer}

3 oz pack of strawberry gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2- 2 cups of frozen strawberries

Directions: Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add frozen strawberries and stir until thawed. I used whole strawberries, so after this step I put it all in the blender and hit the chop button for a few seconds. Let cool for a few minutes.

Once your cream cheese filled pie shell is chilled, fill the rest of the pie with your gelatin mixture. Cover and *carefully* transfer to fridge to let set over night. Top with your remaining cool whip before serving and garnish with strawberries {optional}. I used thawed frozen strawberries to garnish the top and they worked just fine!

Eat. Enjoy.
