I think this was the hit of the 4th of July BBQ. It was almost completely gone by the end of the night and it made a huge pan, 18 x 12″.
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold butter, cut into cubes
1 (6 oz) box strawberry jello
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
20 oz (2 1/2 cups) Sprite
32 oz strawberries, washed and tops removed
handful of blueberries for a red, white and blue dessert if desired
Cool Whip and/or vanilla ice cream
1 For the crust, preheat oven to 350. Combine all crust ingredients in bowl of food processor and pulse until crumbly. Press into bottom of half sheet pan, 18 x 12″.
2 Bake 15 – 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
3 For the filling, cook jello, sugar, cornstarch, salt and Sprite over medium heat. Bring to a boil and whisk until thickened. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
4 Slice strawberries and arrange over crust. (I added a handful of blueberries because I wanted red (strawberries), white (Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream) and blue (blueberries) for the 4th of July. Pour jello mixture over berries. Refrigerate 2 hours or until set.
5 Serve with the Cool Whip and/or vanilla ice cream.
