sure! It is delicious

Sour Cream Cherry Fruit Salad

2 (16 oz.) cans Royal Anne cherries, drained, reserving juice

20-oz. can crushed pineapple, drained, reserving juice

1 Tbsp. unflavored gelatin

3-oz. pkg. cherry Jell-O

1 (8-ounce) pkg. cream cheese, softened

1 cup sour cream

1 cup chopped celery

1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted if desired

Preparation:


Make sure that you check all of the cherries so the pits are removed. Combine reserved juice from canned fruit and measure. Add water, if necessary, to make 2 cups. In small bowl, soften unflavored gelatin in 1/2 cup of this fruit juice for 1-2 minutes. Heat in microwave for 30-60 seconds, or until gelatin dissolves, stirring once during cooking. Set aside.

Bring remaining 1-1/2 cups juice to boil in medium saucepan. In large bowl, dissolve cherry Jell-O in this boiling fruit juice. Set aside to cool slightly.


In another large bowl, beat cream cheese until very soft and fluffy. Add sour cream and beat well until smooth. Add 1/2 cup of the dissolved cherry Jell-O gradually and beat until smooth. Slowly add remaining dissolved cherry Jell-O mixture and dissolved unflavored gelatin mixture. You have to do this slowly and beat constantly so the mixtures blend; otherwise you'll have little bits of cream cheese in the finished salad.


Stir until blended. Add drained cherries, pineapple, celery, and almonds. Pour into 2 quart mold that has been rinsed with cold water and not dried, cover, and chill overnight until well set. Unmold and serve. 10-12 servings

My mother and now me have always tried not to go big on Christmas and be stuck in the kitchen all day like Thanksgiving. I usually do a ham the day or so before or buy spiral sliced to heat up. I make potato salad to go with it. I try to have a breakfast casserole for that morning. Not sure what we are doing this year for everything since DH's kids will start with their mom for Christmas morning this year. Will probably have the ham, potato salad, and then corn pudding, green beans, fruit salad and rolls. Hoping to not have a formal dinner with all the adult kids but if DH wants it I will make it happen.
