This is my daughter in law's recipe. When we have our family gatherings I always ask her to bring this recipe. It is so good and the whole family enjoys it so much. It is also pretty to serve.

How To Make jell-o pear salad

    In a mixer, mash cream cheese and Cool Whip together and then add Jell-O and pour over whole pears that you have lined in bottom of a pretty bowl. (I use my glass bowl that I would serve it in) Chill overnight.

    Slice and serve over lettuce with your meal. Or just cut in squares and serve alone without lettuce.
