Good! I followed the recipe exactly, except I pureed the pears instead of mashing them... I figured my family would've been less likely to eat them with the smooth & chunky texture, so I made it all smooth. They called it green mousse :-) It's not a recipe I would make often, pretty rich, but definitely one to keep on hand for the holidays! Mine turned out a tad runny, but I think it's because I didn't let it set up long enough... but supper was ready and I needed to get it on the table! Next time I make this, I'll give it more time in the fridge... still yummy though! If you want something to compare the flavor to, I thought it tasted very similar to key lime whipped yogurt!
This is so easy, creamy and delicious! A friend tried it using lemon jello and it was equally good.
I always double this because we like it so much. I boil 2 c. juice/water in microwave,then put it in the blender with the jello until dissolved (careful, it's hot). Then I add 8oz. cream cheese a piece at a time while blending. Then put in your pears, and pulse until they are coarse. Pour into a bowl with the last cup of water, and add the topping when it's partially set. It makes this so easy!
