Cranberry-Cherry Jell-o Salad

   Here is the last, so far, Jell-o salad I found.  Wait you may say didn't I already post the cranberry salad... yes and no.  My mother had two different cranberry salad recipes.  So check them both out and see which one is your favorite.  Besides come November we will be looking for anything quick to take to the holiday gatherings.  You can never have enough cranberry recipes.  Red is the color of the season and this is a very pretty dark red
jello mold.

Cranberry-Cherry Jell-o Salad


1 large pkg black cherry jell-o
1 cup hot water
1 large pkg cream cheese, softened
1 can whole cranberry sauce
Pecans if desired

    Dissolve jell-o in hot water.  Add ice cubes and stir until jell-o is chilled and starts to thicken. Remove any unmelted ice cubes.
   Beat cream cheese until cream.  Slowly add jell-o to cream cheese while still beating.  Stir in cranberrys and add pecans if desired.  Pour into a mold and place in refrigerator until set.  Turn mold out on serving dish and serve.

Just a reminder:  If you are taking this to a party, make sure you let everyone know if you added the pecans.  There are some people that are allergic to nuts and we want everyone to enjoy themselves.

                                 You got to admit that looks good.
