Last summer a lady I work with kept on talking about this Jell-O recipe that she had that was really good so we all asked for the recipe. Well when she brought it in I thought to myself Jell-O and cream cheese this was a combination that didn't sound good and I knew my husband didn't care for creamy dishes so I didn't make a copy of it. Well all through the summer, fall and holiday time I listened to all my other co-workers talking about all the events/parties when they made this "white Jell-O" and how everyone loved it. I finally broke down and got the recipe and thought we will see about this. I made it this weekend just in time for the 5 more inches of snow we received. I have to say it was pretty good and my husband loved it!! He even asked me to put this one with the other favorite recipes we save. So give it a try. It is super easy to make. Sorry I totally forgot to take and picture. The recipe said put it in a Jell-O mold but I just used a 13 X 9 dish. I didn’t have any fresh fruit at home so I made my plain but raspberries would be good and I will be trying that next time. The Jell-O is pure white. Kind of neat. Hey fresh raspberries and blueberries would be cute for 4th of July red, white and blue all the way.
