MYSTERY SOLVED!(I think). I simply do not see the purpose of one teaspoon of sugar in this recipe. What difference could it make? I used one tsp. UNFLAVORED GELATIN to improve the set-up. Eureka! This was the perfect firmness and kept its shape in a mold. Flavorwise, this is mildly flavored, not overly sweet or tangy, and has a bit of fizz sensation. The cream cheese does stay slightly chunky (even though I mixed it, with the CRUSHED pineapple, in my Kitchenaid) but is fine. I was extremely skeptical of adding nuts, but feel they added greatly to the flavor and texture. Last tip: BE CERTAIN that the gelatin is COMPLETELY dissolved in the hot water-- you should not hear or see ANY grains or it will not set up. To speed set-up I did put this in my freezer for one hour and then refrigerated another two. It worked perfectly. The End :)
