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.

 

Ingredients

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

 

Directions

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.
