here's another possibility?

Mile-High Strawberry Pie

10 ounces frozen strawberries or raspberries -- thawed
1/2 cup sugar -- or to taste
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 large egg whites
3/4 cup whipping cream
1 baked pie shell or graham cracker crust

In a large bowl, combine berries, sugar, lemon juice, and egg whites.
Beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form and mixture is very thick (15 to 20 minutes).
In a separate bowl, whip the cream to soft peaks and fold into berry mixture. Gently pile filling high into crust and freeze until firm.
About 30 minutes before serving, transfer pie from freezer to refrigerator.

*Any berry can be substituted.

Good Luck!

Hmm... My grandmother made a dessert we affectionately refer to as "Strawberry Stuff" and no gathering was complete without it.

Strawberry Stuff

1 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 16 squares), crushed
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (3 ounce) package strawberry gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1lb fresh strawberries, smashed or pureed
1 tablespoon lemon juice
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash salt
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
Fresh strawberries and mint leaves (optional)

In a small bowl, blend crushed cracker crumbs and butter; set aside 1 tablespoon for topping. Press the remaining crumb mixture onto the bottom of a greased 8-inch square baking dish. Bake at 325 degrees F for about 10 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

In another bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water; stir in smashed strawberries and lemon juice. Refrigerate until partially set, about 1-1/2 hours.

In yet another bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and salt until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Spread half over cooled crust. Cover and refrigerate remaining cream mixture. Pour partially-set gelatin mixture over filling; refrigerate until firm. Top with remaining cream mixture. Refrigerate overnight.

Sprinkle with reserved crumbs and/or garnish with fresh strawberry slices and mint leaves.

Wow, Audeo - that sounds great! Don't know if it was what CookinBlondie
was looking for, but I copied it and for sure will serve to my family at Thanksgiving! Sounds like just the special thing I was looking for to liven up our "ususal" Thanksgiving fare.

Thanks for sharing!

You could do it WW's way but put graham crackers on the bottom.


There is a dessert that we get at our local delis here on Long Island, It has crushed graham crackers on the bottom and chocolate pudding on top covered with whipped cream you could replace the chocolate with strawberry pudding. :?: Just a thought.

dear cookinblondie
Was the filling a little mousse like? or was it pudding like?
I am a chef by trade and I beleive we can get very close to your grandma's fluff, the bottom sounds pretty straight forward but the rest sounds confusing, or should I say, a little bit of a mistery to me!!
do you think that there was dairy products in it? or just the fruit?
was it glazed? think about it, truth is we might get to the same strawberry fluff but it will probably never taste like your grandmother's, true?
truly,
clara, NSW, Australia. :?
