This recipe came from Rose Coughlan, Nana Betty’s best friend’s mother and neighbor when they lived in Bogota, New Jersey.  Robin ended up making this dish for many holiday gatherings.



1 (3 oz) package orange Jell-O

1 ¼ cups boiling water or orange juice

1 can mandarin oranges, drained

½ cup mayonnaise

1 (3 oz) package cream cheese

¼ cup chopped nuts

¼ tsp nutmeg

¼ tsp cinnamon



Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water or juice.  Chill until slightly thickened.  Place oranges in mold and just cover with Jell-O.  Chill until set.  Reserve the remainder of Jell-O and do not allow to set.  Mix together the mayonnaise, cream cheese, chopped nuts and spices.  When Jell-O is set, add the cream cheese mixture and then the remainder of the Jell-O.  Chill and serve.
