Assumption Feast Day Blue Sky Freezer Pie
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup cranberry juice
3 oz Jell-O Berry Blue Gelatin
8 oz cream cheese, softened, divided in half, ROOM TEMP (keep half for cloud layer)
8 oz thawed Cool Whip, (divide into one cup and keep remainder for cloud layer)
1/2 cup cold milk
3.4 oz box Jell-O instant vanilla pudding
Mix graham cracker crumbs and melted/softened butter and press into the bottom of an 8x8 pan. Stick it in the freezer during next step.
BLUE SKY LAYER. Microwave the 1/2 cup of cranberry juice for 1 1/2 minute on high. Add to berry blue gelatin mix to the hot cranberry juice and stir until completely dissolved (2 min). Gradually add to 4 oz cream cheese (only half the cream cheese bar), beating with mixer after each addition until blended. Whisk in 1 cup Cool Whip. Spread the mixture over the crust. Put it back in the freezer during next step (it will be close to solidifying by the time your done.)
TOP CLOUD LAYER. IN A CLEAN BOWL. Beat the remaining 4 oz of cream cheese and 1/2 cup of milk until blended. Add dry pudding mix and beat until combined. Stir in remaining Cool Whip. Spread over gelatin layer. Freeze for at least 2 hours before serving. The original says to refrigerate for 3 hours- I wasn't sure if that was long enough, but the freezer version turned out great!
