Summertime Strawberry Gelatin Salad
It’s the middle layer of this Jell-O that makes this summertime treat to die for.

Ingredients:
1 (3-oz) pkg. strawberry gelatin*
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water

Middle Layer:
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup half and half
1 (8-oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Top Layer:
1 (6-oz) pkg. strawberry gelatin*
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water
3-4 cups sliced fresh strawberries

In a bowl, dissolve strawberry gelatin in boiling water; stir in cold water.  Pour into a 13×9-in pan coated with nonstick cooking spray; refrigerate until set.  Meanwhile in  a small bowl, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute.  In a saucepan over medium heat, heat cream (do not boil).  Add softened gelatin, stir until gelatin is dissolved.  Cool to room temperature.  In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth.   Gradually add the unflavored gelatin mixture, mix well.  Carefully pour over the bottom layer.  Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.  For top layer, dissolve strawberry gelatin in boiling water; stir in cold water.  Cool to room temperature.  Stir in strawberries; carefully spoon over middle layer.

Refrigerate overnight.

*I used sugar free Jell-O and it remained delicious.
