Let's Make It
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.
Garnish with crisp salad greens and additional pears, if desired.
How to Unmold Gelatin
Dip mold in warm water for about 15 seconds. 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.
Prepare as directed doubling all ingredients and using 9x5-inch loaf pan.
Prepare as directed, except substitute PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
