Okay, I'll admit I like to go to buffets so I can eat, the 'fluff desserts/salads'. There is something soothing about the light, airy texture of fluff. I'm addicted to sweets, carbs and good chocolate, not necessarily in that order and I think fluff falls in one of those categories. I happened to find a recipe called, "Pear Fluff" in a 1974 cookbook Kitchen Magic by Deanna Smith Sudweeks. The great thing is, I usually have all the ingredients in the pantry or freezer. Now I don't have to do over-priced buffets anymore!
2 pkgs lime jell-o
2 cups boiling water
Blend in Blender:
1 qt. pears with juice
2 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients together and cool in the fridge.
2 cups whipping cream
Add the whipped cream to the jell-o and pear mixture. Cool again.
I'm thinking 2 small jell-o boxes or one large one would do. This would also be great with different flavors of jell-o and fresh fruit, in season. You know it's a Utah recipe when it includes lime jell-o. :) I also posted an alternate recipe on the Recipes page.
