"My aunt gave me this recipe ten years ago, when we were celebrating Christmas at her house. I have made it every year since then, and now my family considers it one of our traditions. The secret ingredient is baby food. This looks so pretty on the table. The color is fabulous. It's also great for Thanksgiving."

My mother has made this recipe for years, but she uses apricot or peach flavored jello. Extremely easy and tastes great.

Really enjoyed the recipe! Found it easy and satisfying for a dessert. Would like to try it with cherry gelatin next. I couldn't find apricot baby food, so I used babyfood peaches.

Great!! My whole family enjoyed this desert!! I will be making this again soon!
