1 (16 ounce) can
jellied cranberry sauce
1 (16.5 ounce) can
pitted dark sweet cherries, drained
10 1/2 ounces
crushed pineapple with juice
1 (6 ounce) package
Try topping it with this creamy, sweet, tangy dressing.
Mix together: 8-oz softened cream cheese, 1 cup sour cream, 3/4 cup sugar, and 1/2 teas vanilla extract.
After taking this to dozens of gatherings, I now bring preprinted recipe cards with me for the onslaught of requests I get.
Did I miss something? I thought this would be like jello - and set in a mold. Instead it was a runny mess...and I followed the recipe exactly. I would try more jello packets or less water - this didn't set at all! Don't think I will be trying again.
This was a welome sight at our Thanksgiving table, only 2 of the 12 there actually like cranberry sauce - but everyone liked this, several guests took seconds and my husband said - Honey! This is good! I did not add the pecans. And I reserved the juice from the cherries, added water to make 2 cups and heated this up to dissolve the jello. Next time I may try the cranberry jello instead of the cherry. But at any rate, this will become a traditional holiday dish in our house! 2006: Now I've made this over again with some successful changes: I used whole cranberry sauce and like another reviewer used an additional package of unsweetened gelatin. I skipped the whole cherries since I had the whole cranberries. It turned out yummy as before. Now this Thanksgiving I am trying the cran-raspberry flavored jello instead of the cherry to give it more cranberry taste. We'll see if it's consumed as rapidly as before!
This was very tasty, but also very sweet. I will make this again, but next time I will add more water & unflavored gelatin to keep the consistency. (It solidified great, as long as you add 6 ounces of jello not 3 like in the small boxes) I also topped it with a blend of 1 cup softened cream cheese, 1 cup plain yogurt, 3/4 cup sugar & a dash of vanilla. Cranberry haters did like it - never even knew they were in there.
A welcome addition to my Thanksgiving table!
Absolute the most delicious gelatin salad ever! My family likes this one so much that I usually have to make it twice over Thanksgiving weekend!
If you plan on preparing this dish to contribute to a potluck or family meal - double it! Everyone loves it, and the dish is empty before you know it! I normally omit the nuts, for allergy reasons - you don't miss them.
This recipe is always a hit. Even my grandmother asked for the recipe!
