  • Drain pears, reserving 3/4 cup of the syrup. Dice pears; set aside.
  • Stir boiling water into gelatin and salt in medium bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in reserved syrup and lemon juice. Pour 1-1/4 cups gelatin mixture into 8x4-inch loaf pan or 4-cup mold sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until set but not firm (should stick to finger when touched and should mound).
  • Beat remaining gelatin mixture gradually into cream cheese until smooth. Stir in pears and cinnamon. Spoon over clear gelatin in pan.
  • Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Unmold. Cut into 8 slices. Store leftover gelatin mold in refrigerator.

It has been on my family's table for Easter, graduations, birthdays and any other 'ham" dinner. One minor difference, my mother used 1/8 tsp. ground ginger, not cinnamon. My 16 year old daughter was raised on it and it's the only Jell-o mold she'll eat. The tradition will continue with her. Thank you for introducing this heirloom to young cooks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is ok. This is ok. You have to be a big fan of eating straight cream cheese. The lime Jell-O just gives the cream cheese a slight lime flavor which is odd in itself. Even the pears tasted like the cream cheese & not really like pears. The Jell-O only part was good though. I think if I make this again, I will put the pears in the Jell-O & not the cream cheese so I can enjoy more of it. -A cook in St. Louis, MO

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made this recipe for years, usually at Easter. I've made this recipe for years, usually at Easter. I found the recipe in an old The New Joys of Jello recipe book, circa 1975. The recipe in the book calls for 1/8 teaspoon of ginger, not cinnamon. Ginger and pears go perfectly together. If you've tried this recipe with cinnamon and didn't care for it, try it with ground ginger. It's excellent.

I've made it a few times now & have it in my recipe box on your site & have a copy printed up also. I would think it would be good to take to a party also.
