sweet friday - Strawberry Whipped Sensation

Shelley's Sweet Friday's Buddy Post

When I was on my hunt for recipe's for this week, I came accross this one and I just had to try it. My grandmother makes these WONDERFUL strawberry ice cream pies in the summer time. Let's just say they are so good that some of us (no names mentioned here) eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner whenever it is around! Once I got a taste of this treate, it took me back. It didn't disappoint and I must say,Grandma, watch out because there is a new treat in town!

4 cups fresh strawberries, divided
1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/4 c. lemon juice
1 tub (8oz) Cool Whip, thawed, divided
8 Oreo cookiess, inely chopped
1 Tbsp. butter, melted

Line 9x5 inch loaf pan with foil, with ends offoil extending over sides of pan. Mash 2 cups of the strawberries (I threw mine into the Cuisinart) in large bowll. Add condensed milk, juice and 2 cups of the whipped topping; mix well. Pour into prepared pan.

Mix chopped cookies (used Cuisinart again) and butter. Spoon over whipped topping mixture. Cover with ends of foil and genntly press cookie mixture into whipped toping ixture. Freeze 6 hours or until firl. (I froze mine overnight for good measure.)

Invert dessert onto servinglpate when ready to serve; remove pan and foil. Spread remaining whipped topping onto top and sides of dessert. Slice remaining 2 cups of strawberries; arrange over dessert. (You will notice mine didn't have that many strawberries on top - well the kiddos ate those before I could get to them.)
