Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is one of the best jello desserts yet! This is one of the best jello desserts yet! I use sugar free/fat free cranberry jello and light cream cheese(I don't like the texture of the fat free cream cheese) also fat free cool whip. One day I'm going to figure the calories. I've made it at least three times and I've promised to make it for a friend. You do have to plan ahead on this, but it is worth it. At least 5 people have really liked it as much as I have. I can't wait to fix this for our Golden Fellowship luncheon - it's covered dish. I'll let you know how it goes over.

I made a variation of this using ingredients that I have been using in a jello salad recipe for years that always gets rave reviews. I use lemon jello instead of cranberry jello and crushed pineapple instead of oranges. Drain and reserve syrup from 2 8oz cans of pineapple and enough water to make 1 cup, heat mixture to boiling, dissolve jello in hot liquid and cool. Gently stir in a 7oz bottle (or 1 cup) of ginger ale: chill until partially set. While waiting for jello to chill, mix together the crushed pineapple from 1 whole can and 1/2 of the other can and the cranberry sauce. Once jello has chilled, but again, not fully set fold in pineapple and cranberry sauce mixture. Use this as the jello salad layer. Also, I use Dream Whip instead of tub whipped topping.

Put 3/4 of the sugar in the crust and mixed 1/4 of the sugar with the cream cheese. For the crust I used 1/2 salted butter and 1/2 unsalted. I also used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and Cool-Whip Lite. Also added 1/8 cup of slivered almonds when adding the oranges. Absolutely DELICIOUS!!!

I used Sugar Free Cranberry Jello. For the whipped cream layer I used Cool Whip Free (fat free whipped cream), and Reduced Fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese. This recipe was delicious! My husband, my dad, and I loved it! I will make this every year for Christmas dinner from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was truly a light, delightful dessert. This was truly a light, delightful dessert. I didn't have the whole berry cranberry sauce, so I drained the jelled one and used that instead. My husband is diabetic, so I used splenda for the sugar, and I used low fat graham crumbs and low fat cream cheese and the Sugar Free Jello. What a great recipe...make it for summertime, too.

This recipe was very good and I have had family that I made it for ask me to make it again. The ingredients were very simple and it can be completed fairly quickly. The only set back is that the jello is only offered during the holiday season and I stocked up on it so that it can be made during another season!

I forgot to mention that in addition to changing the cranberry sauce, and omitting the mandarin oranges, I used much, much less of the sugar than the recipie calls for; it calls for half a cup, but that is WAY too much. I used much less than even 1/8 of a cup (1/8 of a cup is a coffee scoop).
