Mix above together and pat in 9 x 13 pan. Bake 15 minutes at 375

Top~
2 Cups sugar
2 Cups water use less water if berries are frozen)
1/4 Cup corn starch (4 Tbsp)
1 small box raspberry jello
1 Quart raspberries
Cook sugar, water, and corn starch till thick. Remove from heat~add jello and stir til dissolved. Cool 45 min. to an hour in refrigerator.
add one (1) quart of raspberries just before you add to crust.

Filling~ (second layer)
8 OZ. cream cheese

Lisa, your dessert sounds great and just thing on a summer day. And Allie is too cute trying to cool off! My Roxy used to plop down on top of the vents to cool off.
