Lime Pear Delight

My sister in law Stacey introduced this to our family years ago and it is a favorite! I make it as a desert because my husband finds it strange how Americans have jello salads as "salads" then still provide desert. He thinks all sweet dishes should be deserts and not on the same plate with your dinner entree. He does have a good point.

I did make a change to the original recipe by adding the sugar. It was delicious! This is very creamy and satisfying and one of my top three favorite jello salads!

Lime Pear Delight

  • 1 large pkg lime jello
  • 1 qt of pears (or 2 medium sized cans)
  • 1 quart of whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 8 0z cream cheese
Boil 2 cups of drained pear juice. Add jello powder to the juice, stir well and then remove from stove. Puree the pears and cream cheese together in a blender. Whip the whipping cream and sugar together until stiff peaks form. Fold the cooled jello into the whipping cream. Fold in pear and cream cheese puree. Pour into a 13 X 9 inch casserole dish. Refrigerate 2-4 hours.
