Dad's Birthday Strawberry Pie

Warren's birthday "cake" of choice EVERY year.....Strawberry Pie! I put this recipe in here, not because it is hard to make, as you don't even need a recipe for it! But I include it in here, because it is delicious and someday one of my children will call me up and ask me how to make Strawberry Pie. So, here is the recipe...just for them! Just don't cheat and use cool whip! That is all I ask! Ingredients:
1 box junket Strawberry Danish Dessert
4 cups sliced strawberries
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 TBSP. sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1 pint Heavy Whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

To make the crust, crush 2 cups of graham crackers (or cheat and buy pre-crushed), add the 3 TBSP. sugar and 1/2 cup melted butter. Stir all together and press in the bottom of your pie pan. This makes a pretty thick graham cracker crust, but our family likes it thick!

In a sauce pan follow the PIE directions on the danish dessert box. Let cool slightly and add the strawberries. Pour into the crust and let chill for four hours.

Before serving, mix the whipping cream until it's starting to thicken. Add sugar and vanilla and continue mixing until it's the right consistency. Serve over the pie.
