      Blueberry Pie Jello Dessert

      1 can (16-ounces) crushed pineapple (reserved drained juice)**
      1 cup boiling water
      2 boxes (3 ounces) of grape or berry-blue jell-o gelatin (can substitute sugar-free jell-o)*…
      1 can (16-ounces) blueberry pie filling
      1/2 cup fresh blueberries, washed
      1/4 cup chopped pecans

      1. In a one (1) cup measuring cup, transfer the pineapple juice. Fill the rest of the cup to the top with boiling water.
      2. Pour the gelatin into the pineapple juice/boiling water mixture and stir until the crystals are completely dissolved. Add crushed pineapple and blueberry pie filling. Stir to combine.
      3. Pour the gelatin mixture into a 9- by 13-inch pan.
      4. Cover and refrigerate until firmly set. The salad can be ready to serve in 2 to 3 hours or leave overnight. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
      5. Spread the creamed cheese topping over the set blueberry filling approximately 30 minutes before serving.
      6. Add fresh blueberries and chopped nuts to garnish.
      7. Desserts made with gelatin should be stored in a covered container to prevent the formation of a rubbery surface.
      8. Cream Cheese Topping

        1 (8 ounces) package cream cheese, softened and chopped into blocks
        1/2 cup granulated sugar
        8 ounces sour cream
        1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

      1. In large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, sour cream and vanilla extract.
      2. With electric mixer on medium speed, beat the ingredients until smooth and creamy.
      3. The amount of sugar can be adjusted to taste if necessary.
      4. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in refrigerator until the above Blueberry Jell-O mixture is set. The topping can also be made right before you are ready to serve the salad.
      5. Blueberry Salad Tips

        * In a pinch you can substitute Raspberry or blackberry flavored gelatin.

        Alternative Salad flavor: to prepare a cherry version, substitute cherry flavored gelatin and cherry pie filling.

        Regarding the Pineapple, Do not use fresh pineapple as it contains protein-splitting enzymes that will prevent the gelatin from properly setting. In short, you’ll have a runny mess on your hands!
