2 cups fresh strawberries, divided  $1.66 -see post HERE  
2/3 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Strawberry Flavor Gelatin $.38 -see post HERE
Ice cubes
1/2 cup cold water

6 tbsp. butter -FREE see post HERE
(I omitted sugar and cinnamon)

TOTAL=$2.71 OR $2.95 including tax!

SLICE: 1 cup strawberries; refrigerate for later use. Chop remaining berries; set side. Add boiling water to gelatin mix; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add enough ice to cold water to make 1 cup. Add to gelatin; stir until slightly thickened. Remove any unmelted ice.
WHISK: in COOL WHIP. Stir in chopped berries. Refrigerate 20 to 30 min. or until mixture is very thick and will mound. Spoon into crust.
REFRIGERATE: 6 hours or until firm. Top with sliced berries.
