"This recipe is called white gelatin but is very moist unlike regular gelatin. My family has made this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas and it never gets old."

Normally I try not to rate a recipe unless I have made it EXACTLY as the directions say. However, I was in the process of making this when I realized I was out of unflavored gelatin. I did have orange flavored gelatin so I decided to try the recipe with that instead. I followed the directions and added the vanilla but omitted the lemon juice. This turned out fantastic. I really liked it alot! The only reason I am even typing all of this is to let others know that any packet of gelatin will work in this recipe. If your stuck and dont have unflavored, there is still a good recipe in this!
Followed recipe exactly and it was ok. The presentation was not good for me, it broke apart. The taste was fine.
I used fat free cream cheese, splenda and fat free cool whip. Awesome! 1 point a serving for 6 servings. Topped with fresh strawberries
Loved it. I am making it for Christmas. I don't really LOVE cream cheese (too rich) so I used 75% ricotta cheese and 25% cream cheese. I also cut the sugar in half. It came out real nice, a little lighter than when I used cream cheese only, so it will be perfect for after a full Christmas meal. I will serve it desert glasses, sprinkle a bit of green sugar and place a red maraschino cherry on top! the colors of the holiday. This gelatin is versatile in the presentation because it's white. You can add colored sprinkles for a kid's party, blueberries and strawberries for the 4th of July... you get the idea.
This gelatin is delicious! It is very creamy and fluffy. I made it in a jello mold and garnished the finished product with canned peaches, mandarin oranges, and frozen cranberries. It looked beautiful, and tasted as good as it looked! Thanks for the great recipe!
I made this for Easter dinner tonight and I was a little worried about how it was going to taste because it was so different from any other jello that I have ever made! I dressed it up with sliced strawberries and canned mandarine oranges, drained of course! The presentation was beautiful and I was actually pretty proud of the way it looked! Once everyone started to eat I was hearing "Who made the jello!" My older brother even said to me..."If I ever need to be fed from a tube, feed me this stuff!" Everyone loved it! I will definately make this again! I would say that it could even pass for a dessert as well as a side dish! I did vary a little from the original recipe....I added two package gelatin with 2/3 cup water and I added a little more cool whip. Thank you for the recipe!
I served this with fruit jello as a topping and everyone loved it! It was also a hit as a dip for fresh strawberries.
Husband and son liked this a lot. I thought the cream cheese flavour was a bit overwhelming (and I like cream cheese a lot too) but it's still a nice smooth dessert. It reminds me a bit of almond gelatin, an Asian dessert; I think I might try this again with a wee bit of almond extract. Thanks for the recipe!
