    2 1/4  cups          all-purpose flour
    2      tablespoons   sugar
      3/4  cup           butter or margarine -- softened
                         Filling:
    8      ounces        cream cheese -- softened
    1      cup           confectioners' sugar
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
    2      cups          whipped topping
                         Topping:
    6      ounces        raspberry gelatin powder
    2      cups          boiling water
    2      10 oz pkgs    sweetened frozen raspberries
                         additional whipped topping and fresh mint -- optional
 
 In a bowl, combine flour and sugar; blend in butter with a wooden spoon until
 smooth.  Press into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan.  Bake at
 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until set (crust will not brown).  Cool.  In
 a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and salt
 until smooth.  Fold in whipped topping.  Spread over crust.  For topping,
 dissolve gelatin in boiling water; stir in raspberries. Chill for 20 minutes
 or until mixture begins to thicken.  Spoon over filling.  Refrigerate until
 set.  Cut into squares; garnish with whipped topping and mint if desired.
 Yield:  12-16 servings.

 NOTES : “I knew this cool, fruity and creamy dessert was a winner the first
 time I tasted it.  I confirmed that fact a few summers ago when I entered the
 recipe in a contest at work-it won first place. Co-workers still call to
 request it.” Submitted by Mary Olson, Albany, Oregon.
