The directions didn't say what to do with the 1 1/2 cups cold water, so I dissolved the gelatin in the hot water, then added the cold water and chilled the mixture until thickened, as I think part of this direction was lost and that's what I recalled doing from a different recipe. Otherwise it was great.
