Titus 2 - Christmas - A favorite Christmas dessert/jello salad

My grandma used to make this dessert a lot.  I think mostly at our Christmas dinners which ended up being at Thanksgiving.  The colors are Christmasy so it's a perfect addition to the table at Christmas time.

First take 3 colors of jello (orange, red and green) and make it with 1 cup of hot water, dissolve it and then add 1/2 cup of cold.  After it sets up, cut it into squares.
Next take 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs and pour over 1/2 cup of melted butter.  Press it into pan.

Then take 1 pkg of lemon jello and dissolve it in 1 cup of hot water.  Add 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup pineapple juice.  Chill until thickened slightly.
Then take the lemon jello and mix in 2 cups of coolwhip.  Add the jello cubes and fold them in.  Pour over graham cracker crust.  Let set overnight.  Serves 12

Very yummy and could (and maybe should) be considered the dessert, but of course we must have pie.  We waited until 4 or so to eat our pie.  :)

Merry Christmas!
