Equipment

  • Mixing Bowl
  • 9x13-inch Baking Pan

Ingredients

  • 1 (29 ounce) can sliced pears (reserve 1 cup of the juice)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (6 ounce) box raspberry jello
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 (12 ounce) package Cool Whip (thawed)
  • 1 cup whipped cream (optional topping)
  • 1 cup raspberries (optional topping)

Instructions

  • Open can of pears and drain 1 cup of the pear juice into a bowl. Set bowl aside and throw away the rest of the juice.
  • Add 1 cup of water to pear juice and microwave the liquid for 2-3 minutes or until water is boiling.
  • Add box of raspberry jello to the boiling liquid and stir until all jello has dissolved. Set bowl in fridge and allow it to cool for about 7-10 minutes (you don't want the jello to set, you just want it to cool down).
  • Dump pears and softened cream cheese into a large blender. Add in cooled jello and Cool Whip. Blend until completely combined.
  • Pour jello into 9 x 13 inch pan and set in the fridge until jello is completely set (should take 3-4 hours - you could also let it set up overnight).
  • Serve topped with whipped cream and fresh raspberries.
