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.

Cherry Cream Cheese Gelatin

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)
