Very good everyone loved it! I would remind other cooks to make sure to use room temperature sour cream or it will curdle and use a whisk to completely blend the sour cream in. Read More

This was a nice recipes; however it really does does like black cherry yogurt so I'm not sure it's worth it. It's definitely not an elegant dish for your holiday menu but is an inexpensive easy one that most people will enjoy (but not love). Read More

This is just delicious! Very fresh tasting. My kids loved it. We couldn't find black cherry jello so we used cherry and it was so good! This is a keeper for sure. Read More

I made it for Thanksgiving and it was voted the best cranbery jello salad I have ever made (I try a new one every year). Kids don't seem to like the nuts but all adults loved it! Read More

This is a great recipe and popular at a major restaurant chain. The key is let the jello thicken but not set completely and then you gently stir the sour cream so it flows like ribbons through the sea of jello. You may want to do the jello the quick set way. Also good with pecans instead of walnuts. Read More

Very easy to prepare and very good. I used a jello mold and it looked beautiful. I used cherry jello because I couldn't find black cherry. I will make this jello every Thanksgiving! Read More

This was a very easy and good recipe. I turn the mold out on a bed of lettuce which gave a very nice presentation at Thanksgiving. Read More

It was delicious. I did not make it with the nuts. I added some purple grapes... and I thought that was good. Read More

This was delicious. I wanted to use cranberry jello but couldn't find any. So I used raspberry jello and instead of hot water I used light cranberry juice. I didn't add the nuts. Other than that I did everything the same. Turned out GREAT. Yummy. Will make again. Read More

First attempt at cooking with Jell-O. It was very good and the combination of sour cream and cranberry jelly made this mold taste like a fruit yogurt the way it is sold in Europe. Will probably make it again. Read More
