READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Janet Musgrove

My mom (Mitzi) prepared this for Christmas each year. It is the best, made with fresh cranberries. What makes the whipped cream "luscious"?'s the cream cheese

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Although I suspect that the cream cheese & whipping cream were meant to be combined for a topping, I decided to change that a bit ~ Instead I allowed the 'jell-O' mixture in the refrigerator to almost set before I blended the cream cheese & whipping cream together AND THEN stirred that mixture into the jell-O, & we thought that worked out just great! Another time, I'll probably use a red jell-O, but as originally made, it was very satisfying! [Made & reviewed in Zar Chef Alphabet Soup tag]
