Looking for old jello salad recipie...Help!

manders Dec 16, 2006 02:03 AM

I am searching for an old recipie for a jello salad, that was my grandmother's.
I know it has, Black Cherry Jello, mandrian oranges, pineallple and marshmellow and sour cream (I think. Something creamy and sour, I know. It may include nuts.
I tried the Jello website but no luck since it dosen't include cool whip.
Can anyone help out a girl with the flu a few days before Christmas?

    Take a look at this one. It has cranberries but maybe you can substitute.

      Thanks mrsmegawatt!!
      That one is the closest I have found. But in my grandmother's recipie, you layer it. But that is close enough to make it!

            ChiliDude-Thank you so much for the effort! None of these are the right one. This was a batter cookie.
            Thanks again!
