In celebration of my 13th anniversary today, I made my sweetheart this delicious dessert!!! It is so fresh and flavorful.
48 Nilla Wafers, divided
3/4 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Lemon Flavor Gelatin
1 cup ice cubes
1 pkg. (8oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. lemon zest
1 tub (8 oz.) Cool whip, thawed
1/3 cup raspberry preserves
1 1/2 cups fresh fruit
Stand 16 wafers around edge of plastic wrap-lined 8-inch square pan. In small bowl, add boiling water to gelatin mix; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in ice until melted.
In another bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and lemon zest with mixer until blended. Gradually beat in gelatin. Whisk in 2 cups cool whip.
Pour half the gelatin mixture into prepared pan; cover with 16 wafers. Microwave preserves on HIGH 15 sec. or until melted; brush onto wafers. Top with remaining gelatin mixture and 16 wafers.
Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Invert dessert onto plate; top with remaining cool whip and fruit. ENJOY!!
