“My favorite flavor Jell-o is either raspberry or cherry, I can't decide. This dessert is so easy and really cheap, that it don't matter what flavor Jello you use. I also like the shortbread crust with a twist: brown sugar! And it's fancy enough for company and cheap and easy enough for a Monday night dinner dessert. I guess that's why it's one of my favorite desserts. See my notes at the bottom about making this recipe diabetic friendly.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a 9x13 pan, combine the brown sugar, nuts, and flour; pour in melted butter and mix together, pressing to form a crust. Bake for 10-13 minutes or lightly browned. Cool completely.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and Splenda until smooth. Fold in the whipped topping. Spread over the cooled crust. Cover and refrigerate one hour.
  4. In a bowl, using a whisk, dissolve the Jello powder in the boiling water. Stir in the cold water and spoon over the cream cheese layer. Cover and refrigerate until Jello is firm.
  5. NOTE: If you are a diabetic and would like to use the new Brown Sugar Splenda, please cut down it down to 1/8 cup or 3 tablespoons You will only need 1/2 of what is called for in the recipe. Also, if you would like to add fruit to the Jello stage, do not use fresh pineapple.
