Hungry Bear Pie

Recipe by  

"No baking, easy to prepare, delicious, beautiful, kids love it, great for any holiday or event. Eye appeal: when adding gelatin to applesauce, take a pinch of gelatin and set aside. After frosting cake, sprinkle pinch of gelatin over the top. As it sits in the fridge, gelatin will "flower" and looks beautiful."

This easy, no-bake recipe would be an excellent one for a child to make or to help make. I suggest making this the day before so that the crackers will have time to soften & incorporate well with the other ingredients.

Just OK. I made this over the holidays just for fun and no one was impressed. I took one slice and let everyone taste it and the rest ended up in the garbage. On the other hand this was very attractive and would be a great kid project/snack.

What a surprise! This is so easy and turns out really great! Any fruit flavor of jello would probably be great. Kids and adults will love it!

This was very good. My whole family liked it. My six year old son, made it by himself (with a little direction.) We needed to use extra large heaping 1/2 cups of applesauce in order to use up the filling.

I read the user reviews before trying this recipe out and decided there were more good comments than bad, so I went ahead and made it. Unfortunately, I have to agree with "Megbaum" on this one-- I wasn't impressed. I think the filling was way too tart, and the whole thing had too mushy of a consistency. It would be fun and easy to make as a project with a kid, but as far as taste goes, I think users are better off looking for another recipe.

This is a wonderful dessert! I didn't think that it would turn out well, but it was just perfect. I let it sit in the fridge overnight to allow the applesauce to soak into the graham crackers. I received many compliments from my husband's family. I will definitely make this again!
