Here's what you need to get started:
1 1/2 sticks butter
2 cups flour
2 pints of strawberries
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 Tbs. cornstarch
3 oz. strawberry or raspberry gelatin
Press the flour and butter mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 pan and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Mix together the water, sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil until the liquid becomes clear.
Remove the pan from the heat and immediately stir in two boxes (1 box if you use the larger family size) of strawberry or raspberry gelatin.
Place in the refrigerator until the gelatin mixture becomes firm. Add some whipped topping and enjoy!
