Jello Dessert Recipe

Jello Dessert Recipe is a layered dessert of Lemon Pie Filling, Lime Jello and fresh or canned pears.

Jello ecipe

Top with whipped cream, sprinkled with Graham Cracker crumbs, chopped pecans and Maraschino Cherries, for an old fashioned Christmas dinner or any day delight.

The top can be sprinkles with various chopped nuts or crushed cookie crumbs of your choice, if you prefer.

I have included below a delicious Strawberry and Banana Jello Dessert recipe that is so perfect for a red Christmas or Valentine's Holiday celebration.


Jello Dessert


1 small pkg. (3oz.) lime Jello

2 cups water, divided

3/4 cup finely chopped fresh pears*

2 small pkg. (3.4 oz. each) Jello Lemon Instant Pudding and Pie filling**

2 1/2 cups cold milk

8 oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed

1/4 cup Graham cracker crumbs (optional)

1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Maraschino Cherries

Bring 1 cup water to boiling point. Sprinkle on dry Jello and stir about 3 minutes until all granules are dissolved. Stir in the other cup of cool water. Add chopped pear.

Pour into a 9" x 11" oblong glass dish. Place in refrigerator about 2 hours until congealed.

Pour cold milk into a cold mixing bowl. Sprinkle in instant pie filling mix. Whisk 2 minutes. Whisk in whipped topping until all lumps are gone.

Spread pie mixture on top of jello and return to refrigerator for at least another hour.

Sprinkle top with Graham Cracker crumbs, chopped pecans and Maraschino Cherries. May serve at once. For best flavor, let set in refrigerator overnight.

*Canned pears can be substituted, but they don't provide that full flavor and crunchy texture.

**If using another brand of instant pie filling mix, prepare according to directions on box. Some brands differ in amount of milk to use.



Strawberry And Banana Jello Dessert

1 small (3 oz,) pkg. Strawberry or Cherry Jello

2 cups water, divided

2 (3 oz.) package vanilla instant pudding

2 1/2 cups cold milk

8 oz. thawed whipped cream

Graham Cracker crumbs and pecans as in above recipe if desired.

1 small package frozen strawberries thawed and drained or 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced

Put together according to directions above. The strawberries and bananas can be included in the jello.

If you prefer to put the strawberries on top instead of in the jello, fresh one work best.

This also makes a great "red" Christmas Jello dessert!
