  • Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Add enough cold water to juice to measure 1-1/2 cups; set aside. Arrange 7 pineapple slices in bottom of 9-inch round cake pan sprayed with cooking spray. Place maraschino cherry half, cut-side up, in center of each pineapple slice. Chop remaining pineapple slices; set aside.
  • Stir boiling water into dry gelatin mix in large bowl at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in measured pineapple juice and water. Remove 1 cup of the gelatin; set aside at room temperature. Refrigerate remaining gelatin 1-1/2 hours or until thickened (spoon drawn through leaves definite impression). Stir in chopped pineapple. Spoon gelatin over pineapple slices in pan. Refrigerate 30 min. or until set but not firm (should stick to finger when touched and should mound).
  • Beat cream cheese in large bowl with wire whisk until creamy. Gradually beat in reserved 1 cup gelatin. Pour over gelatin layer in pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Unmold. Store leftover gelatin in refrigerator.

How to Unmold Gelatin

Dip mold in warm water for about 15 sec. Gently pull gelatin from around edges with moist fingers. Place moistened serving plate on top of mold. Invert mold and plate; holding mold and plate together, shake slightly to loosen. Gently remove mold and center gelatin on plate.

Note

Do not use fresh or frozen pineapple, kiwi, papaya or guava juice. Gelatin will not set.

How to Soften Cream Cheese

Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese on microwaveable plate. Microwave on HIGH 10 to 15 sec. or until slightly softened.

    I made this with sugar free orange jello and low fat cream cheese. I share it with my neighbors and they thought it was great. Since we are all on diets it satisfied our hunger for a dessert. No oven to use in the HOT summer but a pretty dessert to put on the table. We were all very satisfied.

    We thought this was great! I made it with SF lime jello & low fat cream cheese. With the hot summer, it really hit the spot. Will be definitely making again!
