“It is a dessert, but isn't too sweet, nor too salty. It is really pretty when you put it in a clear ovenproof dish.”

My aunt has been making this recipe for years & has given me a few pointers....as Hollyfae said, be sure & make sure your cream cheese is all the way to the edges of the pan & sealed (to keep the jello from seeping under the cream cheese & making the crust soggy). It's also helpful to chill the cream cheese really well before topping w/ the jello. Sometimes I like to add an 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple in w/ the strawberries (Paula Deen's version)

A hit every time I make it! Do not try to substitute low fat cream cheese or cool whip... the white layer just won't come together as nicely. I learned the hard way. Multiple times. Make sure to spread the white layer all the way to the edges and get a nice seal so that the jello layer doesn't seep into the bottom. In the spring and early summer, when strawberries are in season around here, I also slice some fresh berries into the jello for presentation.

I love this recipe but found it much better if after the jello is all disolved I add 4 ice cubes until melted then add an 8 oz tub of whipped cream to the jello mixture and mix til smooth then adding the strawberries after. It stays more firm and has a wonderful creamy taste to it.
