It's light and yummy!
In a large bowl, make jello according to package directions. Add cream cheese and mix on medium speed with an electric mixer. Stir in pineapple and refrigerate until firm.
The cream cheese will come to the top and the pineapple and jello will form 2 other layers. This is our family's favorite dish that my mom made every holiday.

This recipe taste like sherbet and is very, very easy and quick to make for hungry children and unexpected guest. I love the taste and texture.
In a blender add 1 small box of gelatin. Add 1/2 cup boiling water. Blend on low speed for 30 seconds. Add 1-1/2 cups crushed ice to blender. Blend on high speed for 30 seconds. Pour into a bowl. Put in the refrigerator for 5 minutes. Enjoy!

Use enough water for boiling your carrots to use for your gelatin. No one will notice the extra vitamins, and you only heat up water once, and you have one less pot to wash.

I used to have a great recipe for the holidays that I seem to have misplaced. It was a Jello recipe that actually uses cherry pie filling in it. Does anyone happen to have it or to know where I can find it again? It was a favorite of ours and it's just disappeared. I'd be grateful for any help I can get.
Thanks in advance!

I make it for xmas and for Valentines
Day. Small box of cherry jello
mix with 1 cup of hot water. Stir
in 1/2 cup of burgandy wine, add
cherry pie filling mix well and
pore into jello mold.
I have also made it with strawberry
jello/and pie filling but use a white
wine. Hope this helps.
Here's one that I have.
Black Cherry Jello
1 large pkg. black cherry Jello
1 can dark sweet cherry pie filling
8 ozs softened cream cheese
8 ozs sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup miniature marshmallows
Dissolve Jello in 2 cups hot water. Add pie filling and mix well Pour into 13"x9" glass pan. Chill until firm.
Mix softened cream cheese with sour cream. Gradually add sugar and
vanilla. Add pecans and marshmallows. Spoon on set Jello.
My grandma used to make one with two boxes of cherry jello. You soft-set the jello (it should be thick but still liquidy) then whip with a mixer, stir in cherry pie filling and mini marshmallows, then back into the fridge to hard set. Scoop into bowls and serve with whipped cream. The top will be fluffy (almost meringuey) with most of the marshmallows and the bottom will be more jello-y with the all the cherries in it.
