Ingredients:  
Raspberry layer:
1 cup boiling water
1 3 oz. package raspberry gelatin
1 package frozen raspberries

White layer:
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup milk or coffee cream
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
1 8-oz cream cheese softened

Lime layer:
1 cup boiling water
1 package (3 oz) lime-flavored gelatin
1 8 oz. can crushed pineapple

Directions:
Directions:
Start with the raspberry layer: pour boiling water on raspberry gelatin in larger bowl. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in frozen raspberries. Chill in refrigerator in bowl until thickened slightly, but not set. Pour raspberry layer into into a round bundt pan and refrigerate while you make the next layer. (You can also use an 8- cup mold or 9x9x2 baking pan, and strawberry gelatin and frozen strawberries may be substituted)

White layer: Soften the gelatin in the cold water. Heat the milk and sugar in a saucepan until hot, but not boiling. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and blend until smooth. Chill until thickened slightly, but not set. Pour over the first layer in the bundt pan and refrigerate while make the next layer.

Lime layer: Pour boiling water on lime flavored gelatin. Stir until dissolved. Stir in pineapple with syrup. Chill in bowl until thickened slightly, but not set. Pour the lime layer over the white layer in the bundt pan and refrigerate.

When you are ready to serve, turn the bundt pan upside down on top of serving platter. Wet a dish towel with hot water and place it over the bundt pan. This will soften the jello slightly, and hopefully the entire three-layer jello will slide out onto the serving platter!

Personal Notes:
My mom makes this every Christmas at their house, and I have made it the last two years when we've had Christmas at our house. It takes a little bit of time, but it is worth it!
