  • Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together first 3 ingredients; firmly press on bottom, up sides, and onto lip of a lightly greased 10-inch pie plate. Bake the curst 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Let it cool on a wire rack for ten minutes or so.
  • Process strawberries in a blender or food processor until finely chopped.
  • Beat condensed milk and cream cheese and strawberry gelatin at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.  Add the blended strawberries; beat at low speed just until blended.
  • Beat 3/4 cup whipping cream at high speed until soft peaks form; gently fold whipped cream into strawberry mixture until there is no color variation. Spoon into prepared crust. Cover and freeze 8 to 12 hours or until firm.
  • Make the remainder of the cream and sugar into whip cream and top your pie.  Add some sliced strawberries for garnish and that’s it!
