Cranberry Jello Salad/Dessert
This is a recipe that my mom always made at Thanksgiving time and then again at Christmas. I have carried on the tradition....and if I didn't, Molly would be very unhappy!
This is one of her favorite things about the holidays. I love it too but since I'm not eating anything with sugar in it, or cranberries, or pineapple....well, it's off my list.
Since I've been asked, here is the recipe:
2 small pkgs of raspberry jello
2 cups boiling water
Dissolve jello in water but do not add any cold water
1 can whole cranberry sauce (be sure to use whole cranberry sauce)
1 large can of crushed pineapple (or 2 small cans) use juice and all
1 cup chopped pecans
After the jello sets up spread the top with a mixture of one large package of cream cheese mixed with one small carton of sour cream. I usually use my mixer to beat these together so they get nice and smooth and creamy.
