  • 2 pkg Raspberry Gelatin 3 oz each
  • 1 cup Boiling Water
  • 20 oz Crushed Pineapple
  • 14 oz Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
  • 2 cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped Pecans


  • Heavily grease bundt pan and set aside.
  • Refrigerate can of crushed pineapple for 30 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, combine gelatin and boiling water. Stir until dissolved.
  • Drain pineapple through a sieve and add juice to gelatin.
  • Place the pineapple on a paper towel to absorb the moisture and set aside.
  • Stir cranberry sauce into gelatin mixture until blended.
  • Chill mixture until it starts to thicken about 30 minutes.
  • Fold in sour cream, pineapple and pecans.
  • Pour into prepared bundt pan.
  • Chill until set, at least 2 hours.


When ready to release the mousse from the bundt pan, use a knife around the edges and center to get air into the pan. Place a plate on top of the mold and flip. You may need to tap quite hard to get to release. Be patient, it will release.
