My mother made this special torte for all our holiday dinners when I was young. I love the colorful stained-glass look of the Jell-O cubes and the dainty ladyfingers in this elegant dessert. I prepare this treat often for my niece, Mollie. It's one of her favorites. -Kimberly Adams, Falmouth, Kentucky

"My mother made this and it didn't set. I was not solid, it fell apart. Taste was great.. Not sure what she did to have it fall like that?"

"This is in response to a preview comment. You make this in a 9in springform pan as it says in the directions. They are easy to find in almost any store."
