Red, White & Blue Jello Creme

“I have been making this dessert for years, and it never fails to draw praise. While some people look down their noses at Jello desserts as being too kitsch, I believe taste comes first. This is light, refreshing, and it makes a beautiful, patriotic presentation. Preparation time does not include chilling time, which is at least 3 hours, so plan accordingly. (I usually prepare this the evening before.)”
