I really like this. It was different from other jello salad recipes that I have had...I made sure that my cream cheese was at room temp before attempting to blend it with the pears and I didn't have any problems.
This is good stuff! I used orange jello since I had it on hand. There was not quite 1 cup of juice in the can of pears so I added water to it until there was one cup...maybe 2 or 3 tablespoons. I don't know if it was my blender or what, but I had to add some water to get the pear and cream cheese to blend properly. The end result in this recipe is a very good dessert side dish. Thanks Katrina!
