This is absolutely delicious! I actually had this on Thanksgiving for the first time and couldn't quit eating it. It takes about five minutes to whip up and your house smells fabulous while doing so. It's just the right amount of cinnamon. In reading the previous reviews, a few people have commented on the texture...ironically enough, the texture is one of the things I enjoyed most about this recipe. It actually feels as though it has some body, unlike plain Jello dishes. Five stars for me without a doubt!

I thought this was ok. Others said they liked it and said it was delicious, but most of it was still left at the end of the dinner.

This is been a tradition in our family for years but we use sugar free jello and like a bit more bite so I use a cup of red hots. I hate sugar free jello but in this recipe it is awesome.

Thanks for the comments. This is not a Jell-O to be eaten on it's own. This is definitely a great complement to a ham, which is the only time I make this. My husband is not a big fan either, but I can't seem to eat ham without it anymore!

Our family has loved this for years, only we've always used Lemon Jello. Also, we ALWAYS double the recipe. It's wonderful.

Loved it last year but some comments about it being too sweet. Used unsweetened apple sauce and it was perfect. Repeat requests for this treat.

This has been a Christmas tradition for years. Our pan is always empty and the children love it!!
