A refreshing molded salad to accompany holiday foods.
Dissolve gelatin and sugar in boiling water; add cream cheese. Mix with electric mixer until cheese is completely dissolved. Chill until partially set. In the meantime, prepare apples and toss with half the lemon juice; reserve. Add apples, remaining lemon juice and nuts to thickened gelatin; pour into a 6-cup mold which has been lightly rubbed with mayonnaise. Chill until firm.
Unmold early in the day; place on serving plate; wrap in plastic and return to refrigerator until ready to serve.
Apple note: Golden Delicious apples are best in this recipe as they hold their shape when baked.
