Double Pear Salad
  • 1 pkg. lime gelatine
  • 6 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 alligator pear-sliced
  • ½ - ⅓ can canned pears – sliced
  • 1 doz. Maraschino cherries
  • ½ tsp. vinegar
  1. Prepare gelatine, using half (1 cup) for fruit and half for cheese.
  2. Place fruit in mold – cover with gelatine and let harden.
  3. Mix rest of warm gelatine to cheese gradually – beating with fork or spoon until smooth.
  4. Add to mixture and allow to set. Very pretty served in slices.
*Make sure you mix the gelatin and cream cheese together when the gelatin is still warm, or it will be lumpy!
