Layered Christmas Jello

1 small package lime jello
1 c. pineapple tidbits, drained
1/3 c. drained pineapple juice
1 c. boiling water
1 package unflavored gelatin
2 T. cold water
8-oz. package cream cheese (softened)
1/4 c. milk
1 large package strawberry jello
2 c. boiling water
1 can whole cranberries

Dissolve jello in boiling water. Add pineapple and juice. Chill in a glass serving bowl.Sprinkle gelatin over cold water to soften.  Add cream cheese softened with milk. Mix well and spread over firm lime layer. Dissolve strawberry jello in hot water. Add cranberries; cool. Pour over cheese layer. Chill until firm. This dessert is prettiest when served in a trifle-shaped bowl, but any container works.
