My 9 yr old daughter watched Paula make this and was trying to write down the ingredients and the directions. So we let her make it. It was so easy for her that she is making it for all Holiday meals

I love this recipe. I saw it on one of Paula's shows and wrote it down & tried it. Everyone wanted the recipe. I was so impressed I bought the cookbook set plus one other. I moved and the recipe got lost. I have searched for this on the net and finally found it. It was not in my cookbooks (or I couldn't find it). Thanks to the Deen family I get accolades whenever I cook.

This was great, thou I ended up adding a lot more whipped cream to make the topping smoother and more spreadable. It was a big hit. In fact I'm making it again for a church group dinner tomorrow.

easy and tasty jello salad for our Thanksgiving meal this year. would make it again. My son is allergic to walnuts, so I used chopped pecans instead. didn't put it in a mold, but served in a crystal bowl and had the topping in a side bowl. thinking of making it with cranberry jello next time. thank you!!
