My friends Emily used to make this every Thanksgiving. It takes a bit of effort, with the thickening of the jello, but it is worth it. Emily passed away 4 years ago, and I remian profoundly thankful for her. Layered Cranberry Ring 1 package raspberry gelatin 1 cup hot water 1 14 oz can crushed pineapple 1 cup Cool Whip 1 ¼ cups boiling water 2 cups miniature marshmallows 4 oz cream cheese, softened 1 cup cranberry relish 1 package lemon gelatin Spray Pam in a large ring mold, or use a pretty glass dish. First layer: Dissolve raspberry gelatin in one-cup hot water. Add cranberry relish. Pour into mold. Chill until formed. Second layer: Dissolve lemon gelatin in 1-¼ cups boiling water. Stir until completely dissolved. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Add juice from canned pineapple. Refrigerate until mixture begins to thicken. In a separate bowl combine cream cheese, and drained pineapple. Add to mixture and combine well. Fold in Cool Whip. Pour over the fist layer. Refrigerate overnight.
