Mom-Mom's Jell Pie

"This is the best and lightest dessert after a very filling meal...a major favorite at every party! Also very versatile! You can make it very festive by substituting different flavors for each holiday...use cherry and berry blue for the Fourth of July, orange and black cherry for Halloween, cherry and lime for Christmas!"
