Broken Glass

Finally! A recipe that uses Jello but doesn't call itself a salad!

Nope, not a salad. Just somethin dangerous that, as a rule, you generally want to avoid. Sounds like good eatin to me!

This is recipe #5 in the July Jello Jigtacular! Collect them all!

1 pkg. ea. lemon, raspberry, lime, and orange Jello (did you catch that folks? 4 boxes of Jello)
1 pkg. gelatin (make that 5 - this, though, is the unflavored stuff)
1 c. pineapple juice
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. cold water
2 c. whippin cream (the liquidy stuff, not Cool Whip--although I know you're tempted)
1 tsp. vanilla

24 graham crackers
1/2 c. butter (melted)
1/2 c. sugar

Pan size: 8x13-inch pan (actually, I think the standard is 9x13, so don't travel the globe lookin for an 8x13 pan, ok?)

How to:
Prepare graham cracker crust in an 8x13-inch pan. Prepare each box of Jello in 4 separate pans; set to harden (this is already usin up way too many dishes for my likin). Soak gelatin in cold water. Heat pineapple juice and add gelatin; cool. Combine whippin cream, sugar and vanilla. Cut Jello and fold together with cream mixture, pineapple mixture and Jello. Pour into pan with graham cracker crust and sprinkle graham crackers on top. Refrigerate 2 hours. (I wonder what this ends up lookin like? I just can't get a good mental visual on it at all. And why the hell is it called broken glass?)
