Ingredients
Graham Cracker Crust:
  • 1½ cups Graham Cracker crumbs (about 11 full graham cracker sheets)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted
Filling:
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 3¼ or 4 ounce package Lemon Pudding and Pie Mix
  • 1 3 ounce package Strawberry Jell-O
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, washed hulled and sliced
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Graham Cracker Crust:
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine Graham Cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Stir until thoroughly mixed and mixture is crumbly.
  2. Pour the graham cracker crumb mixture into a 9 inch deep-dish pie pan. Using the back of a large spoon or the flat bottom of a measuring cup or drinking glass, press the crumb mixture firmly and evenly across the bottom and against the sides of the pie pan.
  3. Bake: Bake 10 minutes. The edges may be just slightly browned, but you do not want the edges or crust to over-brown. Remove from oven. Cool completely on a wire cooling rack.
Filling:
  1. Carefully spread cream cheese over bottom of baked and cooled graham cracker crust.
  2. Prepare and cook Lemon Pudding according to directions on the package. Cool for a few minutes, and then pour over cream cheese in the graham cracker crust. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or until pudding is chilled and firm.
  3. Prepare Strawberry Jell-O according to directions on the package. Refrigerate until mixture is as thick as unbeaten egg whites. Fold strawberries into Jell-O, and then pour Jell-O mixture over the chilled lemon pudding. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until Jell-O is chilled and firm.
