Delicious congealed raspberry salad with cream cheese and pretzel topping. Love the sweet with the salty, and anything with cream cheese of course. The pie filling I use is Solo brand and is a smallish can - I believe about 12 oz. This makes a pretty "red" alternative for the Holiday season. Printed off the internet some time ago so can't give proper credit.
