It is not a celebration at our house, unless there is Jello. Rainbow Jello is a favorite. And if you are going to be home for about 6 hours...it's totally worth it.
4 boxes of Jello (6 oz size) in any flavors (I used raspberry, lime, lemon, and orange)
1 small carton of sour cream
Mix first flavor of Jello with 1 cup boiling water and stir well for at least 2 minutes. Add 1 cup cold water, stirring until Jello is completly dissolved. Divide Jello liquid in half and set one half aside. To other half, add 2 TBSP of sour cream and stir in with a whisk. Pour into a 9x13 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Place in refridgerator to set for 45 minutes. Then, pour same flavored plain Jello on top. Let set for 45 minutes. Repeat with each flavor until rainbow is complete.
CRESCENT ROLL CREAM CHEESE BARS
2 packages of crescent rolls (in the tube)
16 oz. of plain cream cheese
1 1/2 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp cinnamon
(optional: rind and juice of 1 lemon)
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Press 1 package of crescent rolls into the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Beat cream cheese, 1 cup of sugar, vanilla, and egg yolk (save the egg white) (also add rind and juice of 1 lemon if you would like) until smooth. Spread over pressed rolls. Place other package of crescent rolls on top of the cream cheese mixture (I try to smooth out and connnect the "stitches" before placing it). Brush top of rolls with egg white. Mix cinnamon and 1/2 C sugar together and sprinkle over the top. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cut into bars when cool. Keep refrigerated.
