What You Need

cups  boiling water
pkg.  (8-serving size) JELL-O Orange Flavor Gelatin
cup  cold water
cup  cold milk
pkg.  (4-serving size) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
tub  (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
can  (11 oz.) mandarin oranges, drained
large  sugar cookies

Make It

STIR boiling water into dry gelatin in large bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Pour 1-1/2 cups of the gelatin into 9-inch round cake pan sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate 2 hours until set but not firm (gelatin sticks to finger when touched and should mound).

ADD milk to remaining gelatin; stir until well blended. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes or until well blended. Gently stir in 2 cups of the whipped topping and the oranges. Spoon over gelatin layer in pan. Arrange cookies on pudding mixture to form crust (pan will be full). Cover with plastic wrap.

REFRIGERATE 4 hours or until firm. To unmold, run small metal spatula around edge of pan. Dip pan in warm water, just to rim, for about 10 seconds. Place serving plate on top of pan. Invert; holding pan and plate together, shake gently to loosen. Carefully remove pan. Garnish with remaining whipped topping. Store leftover dessert in refrigerator.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size Wise
At 10 servings, this is the perfect dessert to serve your guests at your next Easter gathering.
Substitute 2 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O Orange Flavor Gelatin for the 1 pkg. (8-serving size) gelatin.
How to Thaw COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
Place unopened tub of COOL WHIP in the refrigerator. For complete thawing, allow these times: 4 hours for 8-oz. tub, 5 hours for 12-oz. tub, 6 hours for 16-oz. tub. Do not thaw COOL WHIP in the microwave.
