Cooking Process:

Crust:

Mix flour, brown sugar, butter and nuts in a bowl, press evenly into a 9"x13" pan and bake at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes.  Be sure not to burn the crust.  Allow to cool before adding next layer.

Layer 1:

Dissolve lemon jello in 1 cup of hot water (this is less water than normal).  In a seperate bowl, combine cream cheese (room temperature), powdered sugar, vanilla and blend with mixer.  Add Cool Whip and continue mixing.  Once lemon jello has cooled completely, slowly add to cream cheese mixture using mixer.  Pour mixture over crust and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Layer 2:

Dissove 2 boxes of strawberry jello into 3 cups of hot water.  Stir well to ensure that all of the gelatin is dissolved.  One the jello is completely cool, and the first layer has been refrigerated for 2 hours, pour cooled jello onto cream cheese layer and allow to set.

how to serve:

You can garnish with whipped cream and/or fresh fruit (optional)
