    Broken Glass Cake
    Different and pretty! My family loves this one.

    This was a Jello dessert my mother prepared for special occasions. The original recipe came from a cookbook the employees at Amerock had put together over thirty years ago. The original recipe is long gone, but I can recreate it from memory. I have also altered it to contain fewer calories and be low-fat. It has always been a favorite at our house.

  • Ingredients:
    6 small pkgs of different colors of Jello (sugar free, if desired)
    2 pages of graham crackers
    1/2 cup of sugar
    1/4 cup of margarine
    1 packet of Knox gelatin
    1 cup boiled - then cooled pineapple juice
    1 small container of no-fat Cool Whip - thawed

    1. Prepare each package of Jello in its own container with 1 1/2 cup boiling water.Refrigerate for a few hours until set. When set cut into cubes and put into 9x12 pan. (Using a glass pan will look most like "broken glass".)
    2. Boil 1 cup of pineapple juice. Cool to lukewarm. Add 2 packages of Knox gelatin. Mix thoroughly.
    3. Fold into Cool Whip. Pour onto cubed Jello and using a spatula push in between Jello cubes and spread on top.
    4. Crush graham crackers. Mix with sugar and melted margarine. Spread on top of Cool Whip mixture. Refrigerate for a few hours to set. Cut into squares like cake.
