The Strawberry Jello Recipe by Request

Some have asked for the recipe for Saturday's Jello I was making for the church potluck. It is a recipe from my Mom, who often left out little direction details...but it went together well and was a smashing success at the potluck.

Strawberry Jello from Mom

3 three oz. pkgs. strawberry jello
(I had to use 1 and 1/2 six oz. boxes because I couldn't find
the little 3 oz. boxes at my store.)

It is important to use only 3 oz.
of the second box!
3 cups of Boiling Water
3 ten oz. pkgs frozen sweetened strawberries (again had to use 2 pints)
1 16 oz. can crushed pineapple
3 large firm bananas diced

3/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup cream cheese

Dissolve jello in 3 cups of boiling water
Add strawberries, stir until strawberries are thawed
Add pineapple
Stir in bananas

Pour 1/2 mixture into 9 x 13 pan (I used a large soup ladle to be sure to get even amounts of fruit and liquid)

While that is setting up in refrig, leave remaining half on counter.

Mix together 3/4 cup sour cream and 3/4 cup cream cheese
Spread this over mixture that is chilled (from refrig) and pour other half of jello over the sour cream mixture and chill

Garnish with left over cream cheese mixture. If Mom made it in summer, she always had some fresh strawberries to garnish the top.
