1 1/2 c. cold ginger ale or water
2 Tbsp. lemon juice

Drain pears, reserving liquid. Dice pears; set aside. Add water to liquid to make 1 1/2 cups; bring to boil in small saucepan.

Stir reserved 2 1/2 cups gelatin gradually into cream cheese in large bowl with wire whisk until smooth. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in remaining diced pears and pecans. Spoon over gelatin layer in mold. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Unmold. Garnish as desired.
