Apricot Jello

Because we all know jello is the best part of Thanksgiving...
1 - 8oz package cream cheese
2 - small apricot jello
1 - can crushed pineapple
1 - cup hot water
1 - 12 or 16 oz coolwhip
1 - cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
In a saucepan, mix water, jello and pineapple over medium heat. Simmer for 10 minutes. Take off stove and cool slightly. Mix in softened cream cheese (if cold then warm slightly in microwave) with beaters. Put in frige or freezer (my usual choice but do not let freeze and stir it occasionally) till thickened like jello. Mix in coolwhip and nuts. Pour into serving bowel and refrigerate.

I am pretty miraculous...
I couldn't find apricot jello (mom gets it at Maceys) so I tried strawberry. I LOVE it. You could basically use any jello that would taste good with pineapple.
