Holiday Cranberry Salad

Holiday Cranberry Salad

This salad is wonderful for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.  My family loves it.  Enjoy!

2 pkgs of small raspberry jello
1 ¼ cup of boiling water
1 16 oz. can of whole cranberry sauce
2/3 cup of port wine
1 16 oz. can crushed pineapple (undrained)

8 oz. pkg of cream cheese, softened
1 cup of Cool Whip
1 cup of powdered sugar

Dissolve the jello in hot water.  Add the cranberry sauce and pineapple and let set for ½ hour. 
Add the wine, stirring well.  Chill for 4 hours.  For the topping, mix the cream cheese, cool whip
and powdered sugar with a beater until smooth. If needed, add a little more Cool Whip or milk. Spread over the jello salad and serve.
