Gin's Dry Gelatin

Comment on this recipe

"The most festive dessert is made in a clear fancy bowl with green gelatin and extra maraschino cherries. Then cut about five more cherries to resemble stars or holly or flowers and arrange on top."

Ingredients

1 can (15 ounces) fruit
1 package (3 ounces) dry gelatin mix
1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 container (8 ounces) small-curd cottage cheese

Instructions

Drain fruit until very dry. Mix whipped topping, cottage cheese and fruit in a bowl. Add dry gelatin and mix. Refrigerate and serve. Tips: Fruit can be any canned fruit. Gelatin may be any flavor; red and green are excellent for holidays. Recipe can be increased easily. Just increase to next size of can and containers and use 2 packages of gelatin or 6-ounce size. Recipe can be used for diabetics. Use sugar-free gelatin, lite fruit or packed in water or pineapple juice, and lite whipped topping.
