Spray 10-cup flag mold with cooking spray; place on baking sheet. Pour Red gelatin into mold. Refrigerate 45 minutes until set but not firm. Meanwhile, refrigerate blue gelatin 45 minutes. After 20 minutes, dissolve lemon gelatin in boiling water in separate bowl. Refrigerate 25 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Whisk COOL WHIP into lemon gelatin; spread over red gelatin layer in mold. Refrigerate 10 minutes or until set but not firm. Cover with blue gelatin. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Unmold.

It’s that time of year we start planning Christmas Dinner if you haven’t started thinking about it already. OK, I got curious on how to save money and time and found some good hacks I didn’t even and just had to share. These hacks are from Reader’s Digest so they are really good. The hacks are below with photos.
1.) Tackle two recipes with one dough Have someone who wants cookies; and someone who wants pie, but you certainly don’t have time to make both. Making pie crust takes a lot of time and patience, so store-bought cookie dough can be swapped in for an easier alternative. Simply Press the softened dough into a pie dish, bake it, then add your favorite no-bake filling like cream or fruit.

2.) Have someone who can’t eat buttermilk or sour cream or you don’t have the ingredients and you need an alternative? Here’s what you can do. See below.
Make a buttermilk or sour cream alternative – – – If your recipe calls for a cup of buttermilk or sour cream —but they’re nowhere to be found in your fridge—take 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice, then add enough milk to equal 1 cup.

3.) Keep Your Cookies Soft.
Need to keep your cookies soft now that you have them baked? Here’s a simple way to do that. See below.
Who likes hard cookies? I know I don’t and neither does Santa Claus. To ensure maximum cookie freshness, store them in a container with a slice of white bread, half of an apple, or an orange peel. The cookies will absorb moisture, keeping them softer longer.
