You will want seconds!

Today I made one of my favorite dessert recipes. It's a simple Chiffon and can be made with any flavor jello that you like. This Chiffon is light and fluffy. Also you can use a graham cracker crust if you want to. I usually don't though. Today I made an orange flavored Chiffon, and it reminds me of a creamsicle! Taking me back to when I was a child. Lemon or lime will give you a nice crisp little bite. Strawberry will remind you of summertime.


** 1 package ( 3 ounces) orange flavored jello, ( or your choice of flavor )

**1 cup of boiling water

** 1 cup of ice cold water

** 2 packages cream cheese, ( 1 8oz ) and ( 1 3oz) It is cheaper to buy an 8oz and just cut it.

** 1 cup of sugar

** 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

** 1 16oz container cool whip

You should soften the cream cheese ahead of time, as it will blend easier and smoother with the sugar. Start by making the jello and let it cool. Meantime in a large mixing bowl , beat the cream cheese, vanilla and sugar and mix well. Be sure it is creamed well with no lumps, as lumps will ruin the Chiffon. Slowly add jello until combined very well. Fold in cool whip and mix well. This part takes some time to do. Cover and refrigerate for about 3 hours or until set. If you want to add a dollop of cool whip on top , that is fine. I like it like that sometimes.

Also here is how to make the graham cracker crust if you want to. This will make a 9x13 size Chiffon.


** 1 box graham cracker crumbs, you will need 2 cups crumbs

** 1/3 cup of sugar

** 1/2 cup of melted butter or margarine

Combine all of the ingredients, then press the crumbs into the bottom of the 9x13 size baking dish. Spoon the Chiffon into the crust and evenly spread in the pan. Cover and put it in the fridge to chill, 3 hours until set.

It Makes 12- 15 servings

Chiffon is a really nice dessert in the summer as it is so light, fluffy and airy. This is one of my favorites! I love it in all flavors. So make some and enjoy. And don't forget to invite some folks over, because it does make quite a bit of Chiffon.

      Looks and sounds absolutely delicious. Creamsicles are one of my favorite childhood things and if this can remind me that, then right on. Recipes like these encourage me to pursue cooking and whipping things up more often. Thank you for a great recipe. Voted up and awesome.
