      Have made this dessert many times but use either whipping cream or cool whip. We prefer the taste. P.S. this can be made into a diet dessert very easily by substiting diet jellos, splenda and low fat whipped topping. You probably will hardly notice the difference and your guests (with weight problems) will thank you for not. You do not need a graham crust - put in a trifle bowl. Enjoy.

      Too easy! Makes a lovely light dessert. I used two pre-made crusts and 8 oz Cool Whip to mix with the lemon Jello, and more Cool Whip on top. They went over huge at our pre-Christmas dinner.
