Pineapple Citrus Cream Squares

(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.

Looks and sounds wonderful! Kids would go for this for sure. (That includes adult kids as well).

I am going to try it It sure looks delicious

Very good and refreshing

This was very good and easy to make. Attn: bnrudy Made exactly what the recipe calls for,...(2)4- serving size gelatin. Never mind the video!

Probably two small or one large package of jello.

Just follow the recipe, it calls for 2 packages of lemon-flavored Jelatin. This is how many you use.

the video show using 1 package of lemon-flavored gelatin, while the recipe has 2 packages of lemon-flavored gelatin. WHAT IS IT 1 OR 2 packages???? =..=

The amount of liquid called for in the recipe would be for 2 packages of jello

The recipe says "2" packages of gelatin but in the video you say "A" package of gelatin?? 1or 2 pkgs??

Made this to take to my husbands's brothers house for the Fourth. It was great. Cool and refreshing.

Did you use 1 or 2 packages gelatin; the video show using 1 package of lemon-flavored gelatin, while the recipe has 2 packages of lemon-flavored gelatin

You could save a few calories by using sugarfree jello and low fat cream cheese

My whole family loved it...it's a keeper for sure.
