(8 Votes)

Everything old is new again, and that goes for the gelatin mold. Our no-mold required refreshing and creamy Pineapple Citrus Cream Squares are easy to serve and bring along too!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 (4-serving-size) packages lemon-flavored gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained, with 1 cup juice reserved
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 1 1/2 cups grated carrot
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add cold water, reserved pineapple juice, and orange peel; mix well. Chill 15 to 20 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Stir in pineapple and carrot. Pour into a 9- x 13-inch baking dish. Chill 1 hour.
     
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Fold in whipped topping and spread evenly over pineapple gelatin mixture.
     
  3. Cover and chill at least 4 hours, or until firm.
