Strawberry Jello Squares With Cream Cheese

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
Mix ingredients above and pack it in a 13x9x2-inch pan. Chill in freezer for 15 minutes.
Mix together:
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk 3 1/2 cups cool whip - Mix last

Spread cream cheese mixture over graham crust. Layer strawberries, cut in half or thirds. Put into fridge.
Dissolve (6oz) strawberry jello in 1 cup boiling water. Add 1 cup cold water and enough ice cubes to make 2 1/2 cups. Pour over cream cheese and strawberries. Cover completely. Refrigerate until firm and time to serve. Just before serving, apply a thin layer of cool whip over jello layer. May garnish lightly with graham cracker crumbs.
Note: Other yummy variations are Peach, Blueberry and Raspberry. Be sure to thoroughly drain fruit so it has no juice. I'm always asked to bring this recipe to family functions. Everyone always has fabulous compliments after eating it!!:0)
