  2. Spoon into a 5-cup gelatin mold coated with cooking spray. Chill until firm.

  3. Beat cream cheese at medium speed of a mixer until smooth. Add sour cream, sugar, and vanilla; beat well. Invert mold onto a serving plate; cut into 8 pieces. Serve on lettuce-lined plates; top with 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture. Garnish with apple slices and chopped pecans, if desired.
