2 pounds fresh strawberries, washed
1 large container cool whip
1 pkg.instant vanilla pudding mix
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk

With a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer, whip 1 cup of milk with pudding mix. Add the vanilla.Fold in cool whip.
Spread a small spoonful of whipped pudding mixture on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan . Lay down six graham crackers. Lightly cover the top of the graham crackers with more whipped topping/ pudding mixture, and then a single layer of strawberries.
Repeat three times, until you have four layers of graham crackers. Spread the last of the whipped pudding over the top and swirl it lightly with a spoon. Add a few more strawberries.
Heat can of frosting in microwave for 1 minute, and drizzle top of torte using a knife or spoon. DELICIOUS!
It's best to refrigerate a couple hours before serving...if you can wait that long!
