This creamy and smooth Raspberry Cream Cheese Jello Salad recipe is one that everyone loves! It's perfect for a holiday dessert that can be made ahead of time.
9x13-inch Baking Pan
- 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)
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.
