#221_Stained Glass Gelatin Dessert

Stained Glass Gelatin Dessert

This dessert is a combination of different Jello-O gelatin flavors which make it so colorful. It is very easy to make, but the preparation takes time.

It has so many different names. Sometimes it is called "Broken Glass Dessert", or "Broken Window Glass Pudding", "Prism", "Rainbow Pudding," "Cathedral Window" , but I think "Stained Glass" sounds better, so I will call it that.

The recipe was given to me by a good friend who says every time she brings it to a pot luck, it is always a big hit. I will post her original recipe exactly the way she wrote it down for me and also my modified version.

She calls it PRISM SALAD.

1 of each. 3 oz. Jello: Raspberry, Lime and Orange. Dissolve separately in 8 or 9 inch square pans using 1 cup boiling water and 1/2 cup cold water for each flavor. Set in fridge until firm.

Lemon Jello Mixture:
1 package Lemon Jello (3oz.) dissolved in 1 cup boiling water. Add 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup pineapple juice. Chill until slightly thickened.

Prepare 1 pt. whipping cream (whip until thick) and blend with the Lemon Jello Mix.

Cut firm gelatin into 1/2 " cubes...

.....then fold Lemon Jello Mix into the cubed gelatin.

Let this mixture chill in a 9x13 pan for at least 5 hours or overnight
before cutting into squares.
Serves 20

Here's my modified version:
I followed everything on her recipe except for the Lemon Jello Mixture. I didn't have the whipping cream when I was making this dessert so I used 1 can condensed milk with the Lemon Jello dissolved in 1-1/2 cups water, eliminated the sugar and pineapple juice.

and this is how it turned out...delish but bubbly.

For Christmas you can use any red and green Jello gelatin or come up with your favorite combination for any occasion and have FUN!
