I used to make this for catering jobs in big sheet pans. A refreshing, cool dessert.
You can make the crust 2 different ways. Great either way.

How to Make STRAWBERRY DREAM BARS

Step-by-Step

  1. In a half sheet pan (17 x 12 x1" deep) mix either crust & pat into pan going up sides of pan also..
    Note: I used smaller dishes here for here at home.
  2. Mix the cool whip, yogurt, & jello by hand & spread over crust.
  3. Place in fridge overnight. Do not cover until tomorrow.
  4. NEXT DAY:
    SCORE THE DESSERT WHERE YOU WILL BE CUTTING IT SO YOU CAN PLACE THE STRAWBERRIES ON.SLICE STRAWBERRIES IN HALF FROM TIP TO TOP, LEAVING LEAVES ON & TOP WITH STRAWBERRY SLICES FOR STRAWBERRY YOGURT.
    I place it so the tip of strawberry points to a corner.
  5. You want it in something that isn't very deep, so you can spatula it out easily so it won't fall apart. It makes a beautiful presentation in a flat pan with all those strawberries in a row. I would make the point of the strawberry point to one corner of the bar, so when it sat on a plate by itself, it looked in diamond shape with a strawberry on top. Very pretty. To me, presentation is everything, along with taste. I wish I had a picture. Oh, I would also save some of the jello granules out & very lightly sprinkle on top of yogurt mixture before putting strawberry on top. I made a day ahead so it could set up good & didn't put strawberry on until ready to serve. But sprinkle jello granules on the day before.
