Apricot Gelatin Salad (T&T)
|Title:||Apricot Gelatin Salad|
This has become one of our favorite salads. My grandkids like it for dessert.
1 large (6 ounce) or 2 small packages apricot gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 (15 ounce) can apricot halves, drained and chopped
1/2 cup walnuts
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
Additional chopped walnuts (optional)
In a bowl, dissolve gelatin in water. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Add pineapple to gelatin and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and pineapple juice until smooth. Stir in gelatin mixture; chill until partially set, stirring occasionally.
Stir in apricots and walnuts, fold in whipped topping.
Pour into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch dish. Sprinkle with walnuts if desired. Chill until firm.
