Blushing Pears

  • Prep Time: 15 Minutes (Total Time: 35 Minutes)
  • Serving Size: 4
  • 2 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O Brand Raspberry Flavor Gelatin
  • 1 qt. (4 cups) Water
  • 4 Firm Ripe Peeled Pears, Such As Bosc, Bartlett Or Anjou
  • 1/2 cup Thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
  • MIX gelatin and water in 3- to 4-quart saucepot. Bring to boil on medium-high heat, stirring frequently until gelatin is completely dissolved.

    ADD pears; partially cover saucepot with lid. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 20 minutes or just until pears are tender, stirring gently every 10 minutes. Remove pears from liquid; reserve liquid for another use (see Tip below) or discard.

    SERVE pears warm or cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight. Top each pear with 2 Tbsp. whipped topping.
