Supreme Dessert Recipe

 

Supreme Dessert

2 packages (3 oz each) or 1 package (6 oz) Jell-O Gelatin (see Note)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups cold water
1 package (10 oz to 1 lb) frozen fruit (see Note)
1 cup sour cream, softened vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, prepared Dream Whip Dessert Topping, or yoghurt
1 1/2 tablespoons brandy (*)
1 1/2 tablespoons rum (*)
2 tablespoons Cointreau or Curacao (*)

(*) or substitute 1/2 teaspoon each brandy and rum extracts and 1 teaspoon orange extract.

Dissolve Jell-O Gelatin and salt in boiling water. Add cold water. Measure 2 cups into bowl; add frozen fruit. Stir, carefully separating fruit with a fork. Chill until mixture is almost set -- about 15 minutes. Spoon into sherbet glasses, filling each two-thirds full. Chill until set, but not firm.

Chill remaining gelatin until just slightly thickened. Add remaining ingredients. Beat 1 minute, or until bubbly. Spoon into the glasses. Chill until firm.

Makes 6 3/4 cups, or 6 to 8 servings.

NOTE: Suggested Jell-O Gelatin and frozen fruit combinations are:

Strawberry gelatin with strawberry halves. Lemon or mixed fruit gelatin with melon balls. Orange-pineapple gelatin with sliced peaches. Raspberry gelatin with red raspberries. Black raspberry gelatin with blueberries. Cherry gelatin with cherries.
