Coca-Cola is a great addition to anything, this old Southern recipe included. The cherries are a nice addition instead of one more cranberry dish for the holiday table. It really is a keeper! 1 large package cherry Jello
1 can black pitted cherries
1 small can crushed pineapple
12 ounces (1-1/2 cups) Coca-Cola, well stirred
1/2 – 3/4 cups crushed walnuts, toasted
Drain pineapple juice into a saucepan. Add cherries and cherry juice; bring to a boil. Add Jello, stir until dissolved. In a bowl measure Coca-Cola. Stir until all bubbles are gone. Add crushed pineapple, nuts and boiling cherry mixture. Chill until set.
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar or to taste
Blend sour cream, mayonnaise, cream cheese and sugar well. After Jello has set, spread on top or just spoon a dollup atop the individual servings.
