How to Make Lime Jello Dessert


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray bottom of a 9 x 9" glass baking pan with cooking spray with flour. Mix butter, shortening, flour, sugar and nuts. Press mixture into baking dish. Bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.
  2. With electric mixer, beat cream cheese; gradually add powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Stir in Cool Whip and vanilla. Spread over cooled crust; spreading to edges of pan to prevent Jello mixture from seeping through and making crust soggy.
  3. Dissolve jello in boiling water, stir in pineapple; set aside. Place bowl of jello mixture in a larger bowl containing ice cubes and cold water to slightly thicken jello. Spoon jello mixture over cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate until set.
  4. Before serving, spread with Cool Whip. Store in refrigerator.
