Seven Layer Jello

Seven layer jello

This dessert that I made for a party tonight was such a hit that I thought I would post a photo and the recipe:
7 layer jello

You will need: 4 (3 oz) jellos - lime, orange, lemon, strawberry, 2 cups of sour cream, 1 cup of sugar & 2 packets of plain Knox gelatin. You will also need about 7 hours because each layer needs to firm up before you add the next layer.

1. start with Lime jello - dissolve the contents of the pkg into 1 cup boiling water. Then add 1/2 cup cold water. Pour into 9x13 pan & put in fridge until firm

2. white layer next: mix 2/3 cup of milk with 1/3 cup of sugar and bring to a boil. mix 2/3 packet of plain Knox gelatin with a 2 T of water, then add it to the milk/sugar mixture. Add 2/3 cup of sour cream and whip until creamy. Let it cool a little, then pour on top of the firm jello layer & refrigerate until firm.

3. Repeat step 1 except use Orange jello.

4. Repeat step 2.

5. Repeat step 1 with Lemon jello

4. Repeat step 2.

7. Repeat step 1 with Strawberry jello.
