  1. Prepare cherry, lime, and orange gelatin according to package directions. Chill each flavor in an 8x8- or 9x9-inch square pan until firm.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix lemon gelatin with sugar and pineapple juice. Chill until partially set. In a large bowl, beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Fold in lemon gelatin mixture. Cut cherry, lime, and orange gelatin into 1-inch cubes, and gently fold into whipped cream mixture.
  3. Line a 9x13-inch pan with lady fingers. Spread gelatin mixture into pan. Chill overnight.

The only thing that wasn't quick and easy about this was waiting for the jello to set. There was also A LOT whipped cream- you could almost do with 2 cups instead of 2 and a half. Cool Whip would probably work good too! It was really yummy though and really light.

Unbelievable! This was recently in our newspaper as Crown Jewel Dessert. Someone wanted the recipe and the response of those that had the recipe was the highest ever received by the newspaper. It is a beautiful dessert to serve at a potluck.

This is great! I made it for the 4th of July and used red and blue jello only. Also good when ladyfingers are omitted and dish is served as a salad. A real kid-pleaser. Also can substitute cool whip instead of whipping cream.

We used to make this years ago. We always used a graham cracker crust. Instead of whip cream we used Dream Whip. Always Delicious and fun to eat.

I posted a photo of the presentation I made, which was two nine-inch pies, using vanilla wafers lining the pie pans to create the crust. I didn't have time to make or buy ladyfingers. I wasn't sure what to do with the dry lemon jell-o and pineapple juice, so I boiled half a cup of water, wisked the lemon jell-o into it, and then added the pineapple juice and chilled it until the cream was ready to add it together. Pretty good!
