Raspberry Jello Salad

Raspberry Jello Salad

This is a recipe I got from my mom and it is a family favorite -- great for reunions and anytime I need to take a "potluck" dish.  (The angle is a little off -- there really is Jello and raspberries under the topping.)

Dissolve two small packages or one large package of raspberry Jello in 2 cups of boiling water.  When dissolved, stir in one small to medium package of frozen raspberries.  Pour into a 9 X 13 baking dish.  (If it looks a little top heavy in raspberries, I will sometimes add 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of cold water and stir it in to give it a little more of a Jello base.) Put in the fridge to set up.

1 package of dream whip, mixed following directions.
Add 4 oz cream cheese and whip.
Add 1/3 cup sugar and whip.
Add 1 1/2 cups diced apples and stir them in. 
(I generally use 2 large apples or 3 small apples and dice them up.)

Spread the topping evenly over the top of the Jello after it has set up and serve.
