Foodie Friday - Broken Glass Dessert


Broken Glass Dessert

1 (3 oz.) package each Lime, Cherry, Orange Jell-O 
4 c. boiling water
1 1/2 c. cold water
1 package (3 oz.) Lemon Jell-O
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. pineapple juice
1 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs
1/3 c. melted butter
2 c. Cool Whip
Prepare 3 flavors of Jell-O separately, using 1 c. boiling water and 1/2 c. cold water for each.  Pour each flavor into 8" square pans.  Chill until firm, or overnight.

Then combine the lemon gelatin, sugar and remaining 1 c. boiling water; stir until gelatin and sugar are dissolved.  Stir in pineapple juice.  Chill until slightly thickened.  Meanwhile, mix the crumbs and melted butter; press into the bottom of a 9" springform pan.  Save a little to sprinkle on the top if you wish.

Cut the firm gelatins into 1/2" cubes.  Blend Cool Whip with lemon gelatin.  Fold in gelatin cubes.  Pour into pan.  Chill at least 5 hours or overnight. Run knife around or spatula between sides of dessert and pan, and remove side of pan before serving.  

My husband's Aunt Edna used to make this for us on our visits to Atlanta.  Now beautiful and impressive is this dessert, not to mention delicious!    I make this with sugar-free gelatin.  A great dessert for the Christmas season!
