I should've known not to make a recipe without any user reviews. All the ingredients are right, but the directions are off. I thought it seemed strange to pour boiling Jello over the cream cheese mixture - it melted that layer and everything mixed together. After, I looked up a few similar recipes, and they say to mix the Jello and the boiling water, then add the still FROZEN strawberries (not thawed like these directions say). This makes so much more sense as it will cool the liquid and cause it to start thickening BEFORE you pour it over the crust/cream cheese mix.
