Strawberry Cups

We don't eat a lot of desserts, definitely not on a daily basis.  Rather desserts are more of a special event or holiday offerings.  Last week my husband and I were celebrating the sale of our house.  It has been a long time coming so we were elated.  I made an easy summer dessert to go with our meal.

Strawberry Delight has always been an easy to make summer treat using either Cool Whip or fresh whipped cream.  I modified the basic strawberry delight to make strawberry cups.   They were easy to make and just a bit dressed up.

Strawberry Cups
 
1 box strawberry jello
2 c water
2 cup Cool Whip Lite
6 strawberries mashed
1⅓ c Oreo cookie crumbs
2 tbsp butter
¼ c granulated sugar

Prepare the jello as per instructions on the box.  Let jello set up.  Mix with Cool Whip then stir in the mashed strawberries.  Refrigerate.  Mix cookie crumbs, butter and sugar together.  Press into muffin tins covering the bottom then partially up the sides to form a cup.  Bake at 350ºF for 5 minutes.  Cool.  Fill with the strawberry mixture.  Chill until firm.  Carefully pop the cups out of the muffin tins.  Garnish with sliced strawberries.

When I went to Baguio, I like the prunes more than strawberry products displayed. I repeated buying them. My only choice for strawberry products is the jam. I hope to taste strawberry cups
