Patriotic Pie

In honor of our nation's birthday I made this yummy treat. While mine didn't turn out like the picture in the magazine it certainly did not disappoint! Give it a go for any holiday by just switching the jello colors.

1 1/2 cups of boiling water
1 package (3 oz.) blue jello
1 cup of ice cubes
1 graham cracker pie crust
1 package (3 oz.) red jello
1 cup, thawed cool whip topping

Mix 3/4 cups of the boiling water to the blue jello. Stir for 2 minutes until completely dissolved.
Add 1/2 cup ice cubes. Stir until melted.
Pour into crust; Refrigerate 5-10 minutes or until set (but not firm).
Repeat to dissolve red jello in separate bowl.
Stir remaining ice cubes with red jello.
Cool 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
Spread cool whip over blue jello. 
Cover with red jello.
Refrigerate 2 hours, or until set.
