“My first taste of this was at a covered dish. Ohhh, how I remember that surprisingly delicious taste! I am thankful that the lady shared her recipe with me. It has become a family favorite. Whenever I carry it to a covered dish everyone asks for this recipe. Sometimes I use it as a gelatin salad and other times, as a desert. It is great served with angel food cake. I hope you try this quick easy dish and enjoy it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, warm the pineapple, cream cheese, and Splenda or sugar until smooth. Stir gently. This does not take long.
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. In a small dish, add the water. Then add the unflavored gelatin to it. Allow a few seconds for it to dissolve.
  4. Add Knox and water mixture to the pineapple mixture. Stir well to blend.
  5. Pour pineapple mixture in a pretty glass bowl. Gently place a few cherries on top, if desired.
  6. Place in refrigerator to set. Chill at least 3 hours before serving.
  7. Note: The 3 hours is your cook tiime. Also note that the small package of Knox unflavored gelatin wasn't labeled with number of ounces. Since I had removed them from the box, I guess at the number of ounces.
