Method:

Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

15 1/2 oz
can of pear halves in light syrup, undrained
1 c
boiling water
3 oz
pkg. lime jello
1/4 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice
6 to 8 oz
cream cheese, softened
1/8 tsp
ground cinnamon

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Drain pears, reserving 3/4 cup of the syrup. Dice pears; set aside.
---
Stir boiling water into jello and salt in medium bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in reserved syrup and lemon juice.
2
Pour 1 1/4 cups of the jello mixture into an 8x4 inch loaf pan or 4-cup mold sprayed with cooking spray.
Refrigerate about 1 hour or until set but not firm- just so it mounds.
3
Beat remaining jello mixture gradually into cream cheese until smooth. Stir in fruit and cinnamon. Spoon over plain lime jello in the pan.
Chill 4 hours or overnight is best.
4
Unmold by dipping mold in warm water for a few seconds. Gently pull jello from around edges with moist fingers. Place on a moist serving plate on top of mold. Invert mold and plate; shake slightly to loosen. Gently remove mold and center jello on plate of salad greens and a few fruit pieces, if desired.
