“This is a great recipe my mom got from my aunt. It is a family tradition for us. It can be made a day or two ahead of time, if you like. It looks just beautiful in a cut crystal bowl. We just 'gobble' it up! If pecans aren't your favorite. substitute walnuts. Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com.”

Directions

  1. Pour 1 cup boiling water over the gelatin mix in a large bowl. Stir it until it is dissolved. Add 1/2 cup pineapple juice. Place it in the refrigerator to partially gel. It is important that the gelatin is only partially gelled.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the pineapple in a small saucepan until it boils. Let it cook about 5 minutes. Cool it to room temperature.
  3. When the gelatin is partially gelled, blend the softened cream cheese into it until it is creamy. Mix in the cooled, cooked pineapple.
  4. Whip the cream until it is fluffy. Fold it into the gelatin-cream cheese mixture. Fold the nuts into the gelatin mixture. Pour it all into a pretty crystal bowl and place it in the refrigerator to completely gel.

I started to make this recipe because it sounded good, but then, as I was making it, I realized it wasn't quite right. The ingredients call for 1 1/2 cups water, but the directions call for 1 cup water and 1/2 cup pineapple juice. I didn't have the pineapple juice, since it wasn't listed in the ingredients, I didn't buy it. I tried draining my canned pineapple juice, but didn't get anywhere near 1/2 a cup. I called a friend who makes a similar salad. She says hers calls for 3 cups of liquid. This one has 2. I decided to add the 3 just to be safe. Also, this recipe asks for the pineapple to be cooked. I decided not too, since it was neither fresh, nor frozen, I figured it wouldn't interfere with the jello setting up. It was a good recipe, once I had it figured out, but I'm glad I didn't just dive into it or ask one of the kids to do it or it may have not turned out well.

I followed the recipe with the added ingredient of the 1/2 cup pineapple juice. Didn't cook the pinapple either as it was a can. Everyone liked how it was NOT THAT SWEET (great for serving with a meal). I wishied it was sweeter as I served it as a dessert. Pretty, festive, and I think for more than 9 servings. Will make again.
