December 26: Cranberry Jello

Another recipe from Brenda, my friend in Boise.

8 oz crushed pineapple
6 oz raspberry jello
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 c chopped nuts
16 oz whole cranberry sauce
1 c whipping cream, whipped
Drain pineapple. Save liquid. Add water to make 2 cups. Bring liquid to boil and use to dissolve gelatin. Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add to cooled jello. Fold in whipped cream. Add cranberry sauce, pineapple and nuts. Let set.
1 c pineapple
2 TB flour
1/2 c sugar
1 egg
8 oz Cool Whip
nuts, to taste

Boil all but Cool Whip until thick, stirring constantly. Cool, then fold in Cool Whip. Spread on top of salad, sprinkle with nuts.
