Cranbrosia Gelatin Mold

Guests "ooh" and "aah" when I bring out this fancy fruit-filled ring. Garnished with mint, sugared cranberries and mandarin oranges, it's one brunch show stopper that's pretty enough to serve as a dessert! —Gladys McCollum Abee, McKee, Kentucky

    I made this but without the sugar and I used splenda 5 maybe 6 packs since I'm diabetic and I loved this and used fat free sour cream. Delicious.

    It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without this!! It has been a part of Thanksgiving for over 50 years! Everyone loves this gelatin salad. Try it once and you will be hooked. You will fight over who gets any leftovers ! This is a winner. Make some and see for yourself.
