OR

Mix 1 package Jello with 2/3 cup boiling water. Mix until completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup cold water and enough ice cubes to make 1 1/4 cup. Stir until slightly thickened. Remove any remaining ice. Gently fold in 1 container of Cool-Whip. You can also mix in some sliced fresh fruit (strawberries are luscious) at this point. Refrigerate about 10 minutes, until filling will mound. Spoon into a graham cracker crust. Chill at least 2 hours. - Kim, forum member
