3. Dip bottom of pan in warm water for 15 minutes and cut into squares. Set aside.

4. In a medium bowl, combine vanilla wafers, sugar and butter. Press into a greased 13x9-inch pan. Chill for 1 hour.

5. In a small bowl, combine unflavored gelatin and cold water. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes.

7. Once cool, whisk in 11/2 containers whipped topping. Gently fold in gelatin cubes and spoon over crust. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
