Carnival of the Recipes # 46

Patriotic Jello

My kids found this in a magazine and insisted we make it... I figured with Jello, Cool Whip, strawberries and Philly Cream Cheese --how could we go wrong...

What You Need:
(2) 16 oz. packages of strawberries
(1) 6 oz. (8 servings) package Strawberry Jello
1 & 1/3 cups of blueberries
(1) 12oz. pound cake
(2) packages of Philadelphia Cream Cheese (softened)
(1) 8 oz. tub of Cool Whip
1/4 cup sugar
1 & 1/2 cups of boiling water
1 cup of cold water
1 cup ice cubes
13 X 9" baking dish

What You Do:
Halve 3 cups of strawberries and slice the remaining cup.
Prepare the Jello. (Stir 1 & 1/2 cup boiling water into the powder and stir until powder is completely dissolved. Use 1 cup cold water and add ice until it measures 2 cups. Pour into gelatin mixture and stir until all ice is dissolved.)
Place Jello in refrigerator for 5 minutes.
Stir SLICED strawberries and 1 cup of the blueberries into gelatin.
Slice pound cake and line the bottom of the baking dish with the slices.
Pour gelatin/fruit mixture over the cake and refrigerate for four hours.
When Jello has set -Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth and then stir in the Cool Whip.
Smooth mixture over Jello.
Arrange halved strawberries and remaining blueberries to make a flag.
