Apricot-Orange Congealed Salad

8 oz. can crushed pineapple, with juice
small package orange jello (sugar-free is fine)
3/4 cup sugar (may reduce the amount)

Combine the first two ingredients in a 3-qt. saucepan. Heat until jello is dissolved. Turn off heat; stir in sugar. Cool.

8 oz. softened cream cheese
2 apricot (4 oz.) bottles baby food (or, 15 oz. can apricot halves, drained and pureed)
1 cup chopped pecans
8 or 9 oz. container Cool Whip

Combine ingredients and pour into mold. Chill for at least 3 hours before unmolding.

Serves 8-10

So good on a holiday buffet.
