1 large can of pears in light syrup
1 8oz package of cream cheese
1 gelatine envelope (not sure if you do gelatine or not)
1/3 cup of water
Place pears (not the syrup) in medium size glass mold/baking dish.
Put 1/2 the syrup in a pot @ low heat. Slowly add the marshmellows, stirring until they melt. Remove pot from stove.
Blend the other 1/2 of syrup with the 8 oz cream cheese.
Combine the two: marshmellows and syrup with cream cheese and syrup.
Boil 1/3 cup of water and dissolve gelatine completely.
Add the gelatine to the syrup/cream cheese/marshmellow mix.
Beat a few seconds to blend ingredients.
Pour the entire over the pears.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
