    I am looking for a jello recipe that I knew as “Cherry Milnot Whip”

    It had a bottom layer of graham cracker crumbs
    the jello mixture had :
    cherry jello
    milnot ( evaporated milk )
    jar cherries
    not sure what else or how to put together.


    Ahhhh!!! Milnot! My mom LOVED the stuff :) We grew up eating Jell-o that we whipped with whipped Milnot for a fluffy lighter-that-dairy-cream dessert. I’ll see what I can find for you.



    This is THE ORIGINAL (from my childhood-quite a while ago! Altho not mentally :-)
    My mother made this way back in the 50’s! If you double this recipe it will work well in a 9 x 13 rectangular (pref. glass) baking dish. You will have to make a Graham Cracker Crust if you want it that way.

    LEMON CRUMB DESSERT (from original Jello recipe book!) + Graham Cracker shell

    1 package (3 oz) Jell-O Lemon or Lime or any flavor JELLO Gelatin
    (You can use sugar free)
    3/4 cups sugar
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 cup boiling water
    ¾ teaspoon grated lemon rind optional
    ⅓ cup lemon (or lime) juice
    1 can (12oz) undiluted evaporated milk, chilled

    1 Graham Cracker crust

    Dissolve Jell-O , sugar and salt in boiling water. Add lemon rind and juice. Chill until very thick. Add evaporated milk and whip until fluffy

    Spoon mixture into Graham Cracker shell

    PS: We always had/have this made with LIME JELLO. I imagine its good in any flavor.

    I might even try it with Chocolate pudding now that I am thinking about it.
