Strawberry Creme Swirl

Strawberry Creme Swirl

Crust:
1 cup flour
1 cup walnuts – finely chopped
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine – melted

Filling:
6 ounces strawberry jello
2 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups cold water
8 ounces cream cheese – softened
7 ounces marshmallow creme
8 ounces Cool Whip – thawed
4 cups whole strawberries

For crust: Combine all ingredients until crumbly; press into bottom
of a 9x13x2-inch glass baking dish. Bake 15 minutes or until browned,
at 375 F. Cool.

For Filling: Dissolve jello in boiling water; add cold water,
stirring well. Chill until of egg white consistency. (A handy tip for
those who are new to making jello desserts!)
Meanwhile beat cream cheese and gradually beat in marshmallow creme
until fluffy. Blend in Cool Whip. Spoon over cooled crust. Arrange
whole berries, point side up, over cream base. Spoon jello over
berries, just to cover. Chill until set 6 hours or overnight.
