DIRECTIONS

  • Stir 1 cup boiling water into each flavor of gelatin in separate medium bowls at least 2 minutes, until dissolved.
  • Stir 3/4 cup of the cold water into the red gelatin.
  • Pour into 9-inch square pan.
  • Refrigerate about 45 minutes or until set but not firm to the touch (gelatin should still stick to the finger when touched).
  • Meanwhile, stir lemon gelatin gradually into cream cheese in large bowl with whisk until smooth.
  • (I use the blender for this step, because I don't like lumpy Jello).
  • Stir in pineapple with the juice.
  • Refrigerate about 45 minutes or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites).
  • Stir in whipped topping and mayonnaise.
  • Spoon over red gelatin layer in pan.
  • Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until set, but not firm (gelatin should stick to finger and should mound).
  • Meanwhile, stir remaining 3/4 cold water into lime gelatin.
  • Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites).
  • Spoon over lemon gelatin mixture in pan.
  • Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.
  • Unmold and cut into squares.
  • Garnish with small dollop of Cool Whip.
