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

How to Make Creamy Fruity Jello


  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.
