    Light airy salad, compliment to Easter dinner. Very pretty too! I would skip the extra sugar. I used light cool whip and I could see using sugar free peach jello the next time to make it diabetic friendly. I think this would be great for a baby shower.

    This was as beautiful as it was tasty and a light, refreshing salad for our Easter dinner. I doubled the recipe and used a Bundt pan as the mold. I presented it on a glass footed tray surrounded by red lettuce around its edges. I did omit the sugar and did not double the almond extract. It was perfect and enjoyed by all.

    Does anyone know whether you have to use the frozen whipped topping? Can you make your own whipped cream from real cream? THank you

    This is delicious even without the added sugar and peach juice!

    This is very good! I have made it several times and always get compliments. I add only 1/2 tsp almond extract as I think 1 tsp can be overwhelming.

    A slightly different version has been a staple at our family dinners since the 1960s.

    1 29-oz can peach slices (peaches chopped slightly)

    1 3-oz pkg lemon gelatin

    1/4 C sugar

    dash salt

    1/4 C boiling water

    1 tsp almond extract

    2 C frozen whipped topping, thawed

    Drain peaches, reserving 1/3 C of juice. Chop peaches.

    Dissolve gelatin, sugar, and salt in boiling water. Add reserved juice.

    Chill until slightly thickened.

    Blend almond extract into whipped topping.

    Gradually blend into gelatin mixture. Fold in peaches.

    Pour into bowl or mold. Refrigerate.

    Made this for a B'day party & it turned out very pretty & great taste. Had this recipe "to try", since it appeared in the 10-11/93 pg.37 book, but had a different picture shown. I used additional CANNED peach slices, on the plate, around the mold & cut some of the slices, into smaller pieces for the top, with a half of maraschino cherry, placed between the small pieces of peaches. Very pretty! Loved the almond taste. Next time, think I will put this into small dessert glasses & serve as a light dessert. Thanks for the good recipe.

    Really easy and very smooth and creamy. Forgot all about jello molds till some of my clients started talking about it. I've made this years ago and it's time to bring it back. Making this for a Thanksgiving side.
