Strawberry Delight

This is great as a side dish jello salad or a dessert because it is soooo good!

2 pkgs. (3 oz.) strawberry gelatin
2 C. boiling water
1 pkg (16 oz.) frozen strawberries
1 can (15 or 16 oz.) crushed pineapples
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese
1/2 C. sugar
1 carton (8 oz.) sour cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 C. nuts

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Put strawberries in hot gelatin and stir until melted. Add pineapple and stir well. Pour into rectangular flat dish, chill for two hours or over night. Stir cream cheese and sugar together until fluffy. Blend in sour cream and vanilla. Spread over gelatin and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Chill.

* You can change it to orange flavor or cranberry by substituting orange jello and 2 (11 oz. ) or 1 (15 oz.) can mandarine oranges (keep everything else the same) or use cherry or cranberry jello with whole berry cranberry sauce (keep everything else the same).
