Christmas Corner

Christmas is a bridge. We need bridges as the river of time flows past. Today's Christmas should mean creating happy hours for tomorrow and reliving those of yesterday.

I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.

Christmas is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas.

Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.

1 small can crushed pineapple
1/2 cup sugar
1 envelope gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1 (8 oz.) package softened cream cheese
1/2 pint whipping cream
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 small bottle red cherries, drained and halved

Directions:

Step 1:
Drain juice from pineapple. Add to juice 1/2 cup sugar and let boil until syrupy (just a few minutes).

Step 2:
Dissolve gelatin in 1/2 cup cold water and add to warm syrup, stirring until completely dissolved.

Step 3:
Mash cream cheese and add to pineapple.

Step 4:
When syrup is cooled, add cream cheese, pineapple, whipped cream, pecans, and cherries.
