Strawberry Whipped Sensation

I saw this recipe in my Summer issue of Kraft Food and Family (which you can order free online!) and thought it looked delicious! Mike agreed when he saw it so we gave it a try for his birthday. It was a lot easier to make than I had anticipated and was pretty good! I think I may try using softened icecream instead of the sweetened condensed milk next time just to mix it up and see if I like that better.

Ingredients:
- 4 c. fresh strawberries, divided
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 1/4 c. lemon juice
- 1 tub (8 oz) Cool Whip, thawed and divided
- 8 Oreo cookies
- 1 T. butter, melted
**After making this a few times I use 12 cookies and 1 1/2 T. butter for crust!**

Directions:
1. Shape foil onto outside of 8x4 loaf pan. Line inside of pan with shaped foil, with ends extending over sides of pan.
2. Mash 2 c. strawberries in large bowl. Stir in condensed milk and juice.
3. Stir 2 c. whipped topping into strawberry mixture. Pour into prepared pan.
4. Finely chop cookies. Combine cookies and butter. Spoon over whipped topping mixture in pan.
5. Cover cookie mixture with ends of foil and gently press cookie mixture into whipped topping mixture. Freeze 6 hours or until firm.
6. Invert dessert onto serving plate when ready to serve; remove pan and foil. Spread remaining whipped topping onto top and sides.
7. Slice remaining 2 c. strawberries; arrange on dessert. Store leftovers in freezer.

I made 2 of them and we let Ella decorate the extra one. It was SO cute! She made the little circle of strawberries around the outside all by herself :-)!

I made this too, but Coby doesn't like Oreo's so I had to use Nilla Wafers - I think the added chocolate would make it MUCH better! It was good though and like you said - easy!!
