After 20 min., dissolve lemon gelatin in boiling water in separate bowl. Refrigerate 25 min. or until slightly thickened.

Prepare as directed, using 13x9-inch pan. Decorate with additional COOL WHIP and fruit (such as blueberries and strawberries) to resemble a flag.

How to Unmold

Dip mold in warm water for about 15 sec. Gently pull gelatin from around edges with moist fingers. Place moistened serving plate on top of mold. Invert mold and plate. Holding mold and plate together, shake slightly to loosen. Gently remove mold and center gelatin on plate.

I made this for a block party two years ago in 2000 for the 4th & man did it go over with a BIG bang there was nothing left but the cookie sheet & to my surprise all the guest were asking if there was another one waiting to be put out wow. We had a blast. & now I make it every year for our block party :) :) :) :) :) :) :) way to go Red, White & Blue. I also take a cake decorating bag & put in some cool whip & do every other stripe white & put little white candy stars in each of the stars on the flag to add a little more style to it. thanks Kraft & Jell-O for this wonderful recipe from all of us at the annual block party :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) have a very happy & safe 4th :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got this mold when it first came out and have been making it for several years. I got this mold when it first came out and have been making it for several years. A couple of years ago, in fixing a minor disaster (I forgot to spray the mold before starting and the jell-o was breaking up as I tried to unmold it) I found a new way to serve it that's become our favorite. I make it in a 9x13 pan, and when it's firm, I cut the whole pan into rows 1/4' wide. Each piece still has the red, white and blue stripes, so I end up with zillions of tiny 'towers'. I place a layer in the bottom of a trifle bowl (or any pretty glass bowl), add a layer of cool whip, a layer of red and blue berries, more cool whip, more Jell-o, etc., until I reach the top. Then I top with cool whip and some pretty whole berries. It's a gorgeous (and delicious) summer dessert!

I unmolded it and by the time I put the blueberries on first and then white stripes, the blue berries started to slide off. I then put the things in sink and turned around the blueberries were off again and the red was sliding off. I pushed it back, then was ready to carry it out I made it 6 steps to my stairs to go out and the whole red top just slide off, and cracked and blueberries fell off into tray. It was bad and I could not take it with me. <<< From Mary, Kraft Kitchens Expert ~ Preparing a layered gelatin mold can be tricky. It is especially important to refrigerate the first gelatin layer only until gelatin is set but not firm and is sticky. This helps the second gelatin layer to adhere to the first layer and prevent the layers from sliding out from each other. >>>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an absolutely superb recipe! This is an absolutely superb recipe! Just remember refrigerator time may vary depending on your circumstances, so pay close attention to the recipe's instructions for when to add the next layer (set but not firm, etc). Other than that, this is super easy, I make it ahead the night before usually and unmold and pipe on cool whip before serving. I also don't use the lemon jello, I use the pineapple, which is wonderful!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I thought the directions were misleading. I thought the directions were misleading. I made the jello according to the recipe, but it was too soon for the middle layer, so I had to wait, and when I put on the blue layer, it was too solid-then when I tried to flip it over on the tray, the red layer was stuck in the mold, so I tried to loosen around the edges, didn't work, it fell apart and was ruined. The trouble was not worth the pretty picture on the recipe!

I made this recipe but i mixed cool whip and cream cheese together for the center layer.. it worked great.. i actually got the flag mold from work and didn't not have the recipe and did this myself.. but i didn't think just cool whip would work.. so that is good to know. Thanks! This recipe is awesome!
