6 to 8


5 Min




8 oz
container cool whip ,thawed
1 1/2 c
crushed and sweetened strawberries or 10 oz. pkg. thawed strawberries or raspberries
1 c
dairy sour cream
1 c
mini marshmallows
1 c
thawed cool whip

Directions Step-By-Step

Spoon the 8 oz. thawed cool whip into a 9-inch pie pan to form a shell with back of spoon.
freeze until firm.
Combine strawberries and sour cream, mixing with electric mixer until well blended.
Fold in remaining whipped cream and marshmallows.
Spoon mixture into frozen cool whip shell; garnish top with Strawberry and mint leaf.(I forgot to save a whole berry slice and the mint leaf).
Place this dessert in freezer until frozen then let thaw in refrigerator. Like you would Cool Whip. After it's servedstorer in refrigerator it will be perfect there;no need to freeze again.
I have found that it is better to put the filling in the pie plate then frost with the cool whip and garnish top before the freeze. Then the same as above; freeze then thaw in refrigerator -then store any leftovers in refrigerator not the freezer.
