It may be a bit retro, but this Cool Whip Jello is a great recipe for a holiday or potluck and may even be the hit at the dessert table. Raspberry gelatin is combined with whipped topping, then layered with a mixture of cream cheese, sugar, and Cool Whip. The finishing touch is a garnish of fresh raspberries.

The pretty pink color is perfect for Easter, a baby or bridal shower, and even Christmastime. Use a decorative clear glass dish with high sides so everyone can see the attractive layers.
