raspberry jello dessert

i'm posting this for cristi... but it turns out that even though she has a temple recommend, she doesn't have any jello. so put this on file and make it.

trust me, it's delish.

raspberry jello dessert

*1/2 cup melted butter
*2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
*2 T sugar

mix together and press into the bottom of a 9x13 pan, reserving 1/3 cup of mixture for garnish.

*1 qt raspberries (or two 10 oz. frozen packages of raspberries)
*1 6 oz package raspberry Jello
*2 cups boiling water

mix together in a bowl, let sit until set - may need to refrigerate. spread over top of graham cracker crust.

*8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
*3/4 cup powdered sugar
*2 tsp. vanilla
*1 pt heavy whipping cream, whipped OR 1 tub (8 or 12 oz, whatever) cool whip, thawed

mix cream cheese with sugar and vanilla. fold in whipped cream or cool whip. spread on top of raspberry mixture. place in refrigerator for a few hours to set up. garnish with reserved graham cracker crumb just before serving.

this is awesome for 4th of july. you can decorate the top like a flag with blueberries, strawberries and raspberries to look like a flag.

I love your temple recommend comment. Haha!

Up until two months ago, I had only purchased jello four times in the 11 years we have been married. Then my kids begged me to buy some, so I did. Now I regret it because they want jello with every meal.

I will definitely be trying this one!

Interesting dessert. Too bad I don't have any Jello or cream cheese on hand right now, or this would be dessert tonight! If you don't mind I'd love to direct Foodista readers to your blog. Just add your choice of widget to this post and you're all set!
