The Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 6

Like the hotdish recipes I shared last month, this is another very Minnesotan recipe. Look in any church or company cookbook from Minnesota and you'll find multiple Jell-O salads.

St. Nick's Salad

  • 2 - 3oz. packages of red raspberry Jell-O
  • 2 c. boiling water
  • 2 - 8oz. packages frozen raspberries, partially defrosted
  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • 12 large marshmallows, cut up
  • 2 - 3oz. packages of cream cheese, softened

Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water, add raspberries and juice; stir well. Pour into 8 or 9 inch square pan; chill until firm. Combine cream cheese, marshmallows and cream in large mixer bowl; beat until stiff. Spread over gelatin mixture and chill thoroughly, cut into squares to serve.
