Set Cherry Salad

One of my favorite salads is called Set Cherry Salad. A yummy Jell-O concoction found in a church cookbook. (I don't put the nuts on.)

Set Cherry Salad 
Pg. 24 of Our Favorite Recipes compiled by Spanish Fork, Utah 18th Ward Relief Society (1989). Submitted by Julie Jenkins

2 small packages Cherry Jell-O
3 cups hot water
1 can cherry pie filling
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp almond flavoring   


12 large marshmallows
3 oz. cream cheese
1 cup whipping cream
½ cup chopped pecans

        Dissolve Jell-O powder in hot water. Add salt, almond extract and pie filling. Place in an 8x8 inch pan. Chill until set.
         When the salad has set, whip the cream and set aside. Then melt marshmallows on the lowest heat on the stove, stirring frequently. When the marshmallows are nearly all melted, in a microwave safe bowl, warm cream cheese for 10 seconds, and then stir vigorously. Microwave for another 10 seconds and stir again until no lumps are left. Add marshmallows in to the bowl of cream cheese and mix until smooth. Cool. 
        Add the cooled marshmallow mixture into the whipped cream. Spread over Jell-O and sprinkle with nuts.
