I moved in with my mom, 82, and was going to fix some Jello. I usually put fruit in it, but she didn't have any. All I could find was cherry pie filling. So I put it in and what a hit! Every week when I make Jello now, I put cherry pie filling in it. Everyone loves it.

Here’s my favorite variation made with sugar-free strawberry or raspberry gelatin.

Make your favorite flavor Jello with hot water

Add 1 can of crushed pineapple or other chopped fruit

Add 1 can of cherry pie filling

Crushed pecans to suit your taste


Refrigerate overnight or until Jello is set.
