Lime-Pear Gelatin Bells

For a festive flair, I use bell-shaped molds for this gelatin salad, but use whatever molds you have on hand. It's such a refreshing way to ring in the holiday season.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    12 servings


  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) lime gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cans (15-1/4 ounces each) sliced or halved pears, drained
  • 12 ounces whipped cream cheese
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • Leaf lettuce
  • 6 maraschino cherries, halved


  • In a bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Place pears in a blender or food processor; cover and process until smooth. Add cream cheese; process until smooth. Add to gelatin and stir well. Refrigerate until cool, about 15 minutes.
  • Fold in whipped cream. Pour into 12 individual bell-shaped molds or other molds coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold onto lettuce-lined plates. Place a piece of cherry at the end of each bell for clapper.
