This is one of those recipes that reminds of Christmas time with Chris' family...I just love it!!! Every now and then I crave it like crazy and so comes the time to make whether it's Christmas or not...I hope you like it. It's called a Salad but it's more like a Dessert...Yumm!!
Raspberry Jello Salad/Dessert
Make crust of:
2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter
6 Tbsp. powdered sugar
Press down into 9x13 pan, reserving 1/3 cup to sprinkle on top.
Cream Cheese layer:
1 8oz package cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 pint cold whipping cream
Mix softened cream cheese with powdered sugar until there are no more lumps. Add whipping cream and beat on high until stiff peaks form. Put half of this mixture over crust. Reserve other half. Refrigerate.
2 1/2 cups boiling water
1 6 oz. package raspberry jello
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
