Broken Glass Torte

Broken Glass Torte


Part 1:
1 package red jello
1 package lime jello
1 package orange jello

Dissolve each flavor separately in 1 cup boiling water and 1/2 cup cold water.  Place each flavor in a small pan in the refrigerator until set.  When set, cut into small cubes.

Part 2:
2 cups crushed graham crackers
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine

Mix well together and press it on the sides and bottom of a greased angel food cake pan, reserving 1-2 tablespoons graham cracker mixture to sprinkle on top.


Part 3:
1 package lemon jello
1/4 cup cold water
1 cup pineapple juice

Dissolve gelatin in cold water.  Heat 1/4 cup pineapple juice.  When hot, add to the dissolved gelatin.  Add the rest of the pineapple juice and mix together.

Part 4:
1/2 pint whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Whip cream, add sugar and vanilla.  Mix until  stiff.  Fold into pineapple mixture (part three).   Add flavored gelatin cubes.  Pour into lined (with graham cracker crumbs) pan.  Sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons reserved graham cracker crumbs.  Chill for eight hours or overnight.


I can remember my Daddy making this every Christmas when I was little.  I thought the pieces looked like stained glass windows when he sliced it.  He always used 2 loaf pans instead of an angel food cake pan.
