1 8-ounce, Cool Whip
1 24-ouce, cottage cheese
1 package, orange or tangerine Jello
2 15-ounce cans, mandarin oranges
¼ cup, sugar
1/2 cup, mandarin orange liquid, reserved

A 70’s Flashback! This delicious dessert was popular back in the 70’s – just don’t tell the children it is made with cottage cheese for those that have picky eaters!

In small bowl, whisk Jello and 1/2 cup of the reserved mandarin orange liquid. Let stand 5 minutes or until completely dissolved.

In large mixing bowl, cream the sugar and cream cheese with mixer. Add the dissolved Jello and mix thoroughly. With spoon or spatula, add cottage cheese and the drained mandarin oranges (you may want to reserve a few pieces to top the dessert). Fold in Cool Whip until thoroughly combined.

Refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours before serving. This is a great dessert for spring and summer.
