Snowy Raspberry Gelatin Mold

This mold is always on our holiday table. The raspberry layer makes an attractive base for the creamy cream cheese layer. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia

    I have tried this twice since picking up my copy of TOH, Holiday Potluck Recipes. It has not turned out looking like the picture, not even close. I want to make for Thanksgiving. The first time I thawed the raspberries but they were still cold so they set up before the milk jello did. The second time I waited to make the raspberry part until the milk jello was almost set, unfortunately the red jello ran over the white. Wish I could load pictures they are actually hilarious. But the taste was wonderful. I will attempt again before Thanksgiving.....wish me luck.

    This is a super easy jello to make! It is eye catching with the white and red colors AND it is delicious! The first time I made it, it was the hit of Thanksgiving! Everyone LOVED it and wanted the recipe! I am asked to make this every time a special occasion comes around! This is easy enough to have as an everyday treat as well! I have made it using frozen raspberries every time but can't wait to try other fruits as well. Enjoy this one!

    Ive made this twice and both times people were fighting over the last serving! I made it with blueberries, raspberries, frozen and fresh.

    Excellent dish for Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner! Not too heavy - complements turkey quite nicely!! 45 minutes was too long to wait to put the white layer on...they didn't adhere to each other...
