Cool 'N Easy Strawberry Pie

May is National Strawberry Month and I have made sure to get my fill! Here is a recipe I used when I found some at the local farmer's market:
2 cups fresh strawberries, divided
2/3 cup  boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
  Ice cubes
1/2 cup cold water
1 tub  (8 oz.) Cool Whip topping, thawed
reduced-fat graham cracker crumb crust (6 oz.)
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 for about 6 hours or until firm. Top with sliced berries.
