*
Serves 8 glass serving cups

*

Strawberries
:

*
*2 pints Strawberries, washed, dried and quartered

Reserve some cut strawberries for garnish, at least 24 pieces.

*

Crust
:

*
*1-2 packages Graham Crackers, crushed

*1-2 teaspoons Granulated Sugar

*3-6 tablespoons Butter, melted

*
Note: I like a lot of crust so I use the larger amount of the ingredients.

*
Mix together the crust ingredients in bowl. Then divide evenly the crust between 8 glass cups, leaving a small amount for crust for sprinkling on top.

*

Filling and Topping:

*
*2 cups Heavy Cream

*6 tablespoons Powdered Sugar

*2 teaspoons Clear Vanilla Extract

*
In a chilled glass or stainless steel mixing bowl. (Chill bowl 10-15 minutes in the fridge.) Whip the heavy cream on low-speed, using a stand mixer with whisk attachment or hand-mixer, slowly adding the powdered sugar and vanilla until cream mixture makes medium soft peaks. Being careful not to over whip. Reserve 1 cup of whipped cream for topping.

*
Strawberry Jell-O mixture:

*
*1 3 ounce package Strawberry Jell-O

*2/3 cup Water

*1/3 cup crushed Ice-cubes

*
Bring to a boil the water in a sauce pan on medium heat. Then turn off the heat and the Jell-O, stirring until sugar crystals are dissolved. Add ice to cool down quickly. Reserve 1/3 cup for drizzled topping.

*
When Jell-O has cooled add 2/3 of the Jell-O, by drizzling slowly into the whipped cream and fold in the cut strawberries.

*

Fill the glass cups evenly with the strawberry Jell-O mixture and then top with whipped cream, drizzling on the reserved Jell-O. Sprinkle on top reserved graham crackers and strawberries.
