Cool and Creamy Raspberry Delight Recipe

Cool and Creamy Raspberry Delight Recipe

I knew this cool, fruit and creamy dessert was a winner the first time I tasted it. I confirmed that fact a few summers ago when I entered the recipe in a contest at work—it won first place. Co-workers still call to request it. — Mary Olson, Albany, Oregon
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:12-16 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) raspberry gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen sweetened raspberries
