Missy, here. I'm going to share my mother's cranberry-raspberry Jello salad with you. I'm sorry I don't have more photos! But I didn't take many last year when I made it (got sidetracked). And I'm not making it again until next week--too late for y'all.
SO… You'll have to just picture the cooking as best you can. :)
Cellia's Cran-raspberry Gelatin Salad
1 Large box (or 2 small boxes) raspberry gelatin
1-1/2 cups of water1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
1 can crushed pineapple in heavy syrup (do NOT drain)
chopped pecans (however many you like)
8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
small 8 oz. container sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
On stovetop, mix together the Jello and water until dissolved.
Add in the can of cranberry sauce and stir until melted.
Add in the can of pineapple with the juice.
Remove from the stove and add in chopped pecans. I'd guess I used about a cup, maybe two. Pour into a 9x13 glass casserole dish. Cover and refrigerate until jelled.
Before serving, mix together the cream cheese, sour cream and sugar. Spread over the chilled gelatin. Sprinkle with a few chopped pecans if desired. It's probably a good idea to refrigerate until the topping is chilled as well so it'll cut easier.
I'm afraid I never got a shot of the completed salad! Things got too crazy right before serving Thanksgiving dinner (this was last year when we had my family here at our house).
So imagine it with a nice, sweet, creamy topping, sprinkled with a few chopped pecans for garnish.
I hope you enjoy it! What's your favorite Jello salad?
