Dissolve Jell-o into one cup boiling water. Put into freezer.

While whipping, pour Jell-o slowly into the cream cheese mixture then fold in the whipped cream.

Pour into a 9" X 12" pan or two store bought crusts.

Great Grandma Ashton made this recipe for many family gatherings.
I only make it on a special occasion (for Uncle Mike's birthday) because it takes a long time.
