LIME PEAR SALAD

To the best of my knowledge this recipe made its way to me from a lady named Nancy in Great Falls, Montana.  This is one of those recipes that goes together quickly and easily but does need to refrigerate overnight.  Of course that makes it a great "make-ahead" dish.

1 large box lime gelatin
1 cup hot pear juice (reserved from the canned pears listed)
2 tbsp cream
1 brick (8-oz) cream cheese, softened
1 can (16-oz) pears, drained and mashed
1 cup whipping cream, whipped

Dissolve the gelatin in the hot pear juice, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved.

Blend the cream into the creamed cheese and beat to blend and soften; stir into the gelatin mixture.
Add the mashed pears, stirring to blend together.  Gently stir the whipped cream into the mixture.

Pour into a mold that has been lightly greased with salad oil or another container and refrigerate overnight before serving.
