|I first had this by Mayor Powell's |
mother in Yakutat who let me help her make it,
and have religiously made it since then...

1 (3 oz. small box) orange jello
1 (16 oz. large tub) small curd cottage cheese
1 (8 oz. can) of crushed pineapple, drained
1 (8 oz. tub) of cool whip, thawed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Drain the pineapple. Mix the cottage cheese and whipping cream together, until well blended; stir in the pineapple and vanilla, and mix well.
Stir in orange jello, mixing very well until you have a uniform pale-orange color. Chill for a minimum of 4 hours (this step is very important) prior to serving. - Enjoy!
Tips: I like to whip this up in the morning so it is ready to serve after dinner! Kids just love it – and it is also just as tasty alternatively using other citrus flavors of jello ;-)
