Cranberry Pineapple "Muffins" (a repost)
I found this little tangy, tart and sweet dish in a magazine, which sent me to Kraftfoods.com for the recipe.
I love the presentation. It's perfect to serve on your Holiday table- SO festive! Such a tasty sidedish to any chicken, turkey or pork recipe. The Thanksgiving turkey or the Christmas Ham would love it as a sidekick!
When I served it, it was delicious and a big hit, however, I did not have luck removing them from the liners, so next time I will spray the cupcake liners with a non-stick spray as one of my readers suggested. It can also be made in a large (13x9) glass baking dish.
These qualify as a side dish or a light dessert. They really are a welcomed relief from the other heavy dishes during the holidays.
YOU WILL NEED:
1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple, in juice
2 pkg. (3 oz. each) JELL-O Raspberry flavor gelatin
1 can (16 oz.) whole berry cranberry sauce
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
1 Apple, chopped
Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Add enough water to juice to measure 2-1/2 cups; pour into saucepan. Bring to boil. Add to gelatin mixes in large bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved.
Stir in pineapple, cranberry sauce, nuts and apples. Spoon into 24 paper-lined muffin cups.
REFRIGERATE 2-1/2 hours or until firm. Remove desserts from liners before serving.
You may also prepare these by using JELL-O Cherry Flavor Gelatin or JELL-O Raspberry Flavor Sugar Free Gelatin.
