20-oz. can crushed pineapple, drained, reserving juice
1 Tbsp. unflavored gelatin
3-oz. pkg. cherry Jell-O
2 3-oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted

Combine reserved juice from canned fruit and measure. Add water, if necessary, to make 2 cups. In small bowl, soften unflavored gelatin in 1/2 cup of this fruit juice. Heat in microwave for 30-60 seconds, or until gelatin dissolves, stirring once during cooking. Set aside. Bring remaining 1-1/2 cups juice to boil in medium saucepan. In large bowl, dissolve cherry Jell-O in this boiling fruit juice. Set aside to cool slightly.

In another large bowl, beat cream cheese until very soft and fluffy. Add sour cream and beat well until smooth. Add 1/2 cup of the dissolved cherry Jell-O gradually and beat until smooth. Slowly add remaining dissolved cherry Jell-O mixture and unflavored gelatin mixture. Stir until blended. Add drained cherries, pineapple, nuts, and almonds. Pour into 2 quart mold, cover, and chill overnight until well set. Un-mold and serve. 10-12 servings
