This is the way my grandmother and mother always made it. It comes out lighter and fluffier.
- 2 (3 ounce) packages Jello gelatin (lemon is good)
- 2 pints vanilla ice cream
- peach slices (optional)
- Make the jello according to directions on package and let set until it mounds when spooned.
- Then beat in the ice cream, add fruit if you're going to, and let it set completely in the refrigerator. Or put it in a pie crust and top with whipped cream. Black raspberry and black cherry work really well, too.
Grandma made this for holidays. I've been trying to replicate it for years with mixed results. Now I can get it right. Thanks for posting!!
yummm! I made this in Florida in 1962! I used strawberry and also lime jello, it was very refreshing when you are so warm!
