2 small boxes of cranberry (Jello Brand) Jello or any
½ cup sugar
1 bag of fresh cranberries.
½ -1 cup pecans (or nuts of choice)
1 softened package of Philadelphia Light or Regular cream cheese
1 can of crushed pineapple (Dole is the best), drained thoroughly
Put cranberries in a pan of water and add sugar. Cook until cranberries begin to pop open. Remove from heat, and while its cooling fold softened cream cheese into cranberries and it will melt. While that is cooling, make Jello only ½ way (use only hot water, do not add the 2nd step of cold water once granules are dissolved.) Refrigerate until softly gelled, then add remaining ingredients and mix. Refrigerate until ready to serve. It is very pretty, colorful and festive!
