Cherry Cream Cheese Gelatin

Good and colorful for the holidays. I used no sugar added pears and I thought the mixture was a little tart so I added some Splenda. Served in sherbet dishes with canned real cream dairy whipped topping. Good for my diabetic husband's diet and my kidney diet. Yummy.

Absolutely delicious! I used sugar free jello, low fat cream cheese and sugar free cool whip because my sister in law is diabetic & on dialysis. Everyone thought it was great (even my 2 grandsons)
