This is a yummy, refreshing dessert for a hot summer day. Delicious!

You can switch the Vanilla sandwich cookies for Chocolate if you prefer. I have made it both ways..vanilla being my favorite. This dessert can also be frozen.

How to Make Strawberry Cream Dessert

    Pour melted butter over, mix well with fork, and press the buttered crumbs into the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
  2. In large bowl, combine gelatin with the boiling water. Stir until the gelatin mixture completely dissolves. Add the pineapple-orange juice and the cold water and stir well. Then add the strawberry puree. Refrigerate until the mixture becomes a bit thicker.
