Cranberry Amaretto Holiday Gelatin Salad

Here's what I did to use up this whole Amaretto Cranberry sauce I made. It's a great side dish with any poultry meal~

1 large box cherry, or strawberry gelatin
1 cup hot water (if you haven't made the Amaretto Cranberry sauce, or you can use 3/4 cup hot water and 1/4 cup Amaretto)
1 homemade batch of Amaretto Cranberry Sauce or use a  (16 ounce) can whole cranberry sauce
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup chopped apples I like Mcintosh
1/4 cup chopped pistachio or walnuts
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
Dissolve gelatin in hot water. Cool and chill slightly about an hour so it's  liquid wiggly not solid.

Break up cranberry sauce with a fork and add to gelatin with celery, apples and nuts. Fold in cream cheese. Pour into an 8-inch square pan or festive mold such as a Christmas Tree holiday mold. Refrigerate.
