Black & Blue Berry Jell-O Salad

Many moons ago my mom found this recipe in an old church cookbook. It was such a hit that for 30+ years it has been a permanent feature at every family holiday or potluck. It’s, by far, my favorite of all side dishes and so tasty I usually sneak some for breakfast the next day (if there’s any left!).

2 small packages berry Jell-O (raspberry or blackberry are good too) 
3 cups boiling water
1 can (15-oz) blueberries
1 can (15-oz) blackberries
1 small can crushed pineapple

Topping
1 (8-oz) package cream cheese
1 small Cool Whip
1 cup powdered sugar

Mix Jell-O with 3 cups of boiling water. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add berries and pineapple with juice. Refrigerate until Jell-O is completely set (overnight works well).

Blend topping ingredients together with a mixer. Spread over congealed salad. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
