  • Stir juice cocktail into dry gelatin mixes in large saucepan. Bring to boil on medium-high heat, stirring frequently until gelatin is dissolved.
  • Add pears; partially cover pan with lid. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 25 min. or just until pears are tender, stirring every 5 min. Remove pears from liquid; discard liquid or reserve for other use. (See Tip.)
  • Refrigerate 1 hour. Cut pears in half. Using the tip of a paring knife or a melon baller, carefully remove seeds. Mix cream cheese with remaining ingredients. Spoon 2 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture into center of each pear just before serving. Refrigerate leftovers.
