I am a college student and decided to make this pie as my contribution to my
family's Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone loved it and said it was a great alternative
to the usual holiday desserts. It was so cheap and easy to make. I used a no
bake graham cracker crust and it was wonderful. I will definately be making this
again, perhaps with different types of fruit to experiment. Thanks for the great
I dont know if i did something wrong, but the filling was enough for 2 pies!!the pie did taste like cheesecake.
Just the recipe I was looking for. My changes: Used a graham craker crust, and "whipped" a regular 8 Oz. block of cream cheese. Added, an oatmeal cookie crumb topping because I had a few stale cookies around. Delcious and I like the fact that it uses gelatin instead of pudding or condensed milk, the cream cheese (which I didn't use low fat)was enough dairy calories in this pie. My jello was tropical pineapple , so it had kind of a tropical summery tang.
I make this everytime there is a potluck at work and the only thing I change is switch out the pineapple geletin for orange and it tastes great! Yes, there is a lot of filling left over but I put it into dessert cups and enjoy it at home because there is never any pie left over.
I likes this recipe. but my husband did not, not a big fan of pineapple from a can, make sure you use sweet pineapple. and mix everything very well
I made this for a dinner party, and the hostess asked for the recipe! It was a hit! Very fluffy and perfect for summer. Not overpoweringly sweet, but decievingly rich, so cut small slices. I made my own graham cracker crust, and the filling was the perfect amount for the 9-inch pie plate I used. A great summer recipe, and it requires so few ingredients! Thanks for sharing!
Everyone seemed to really rate this recipe high, but, we just weren't a big fan of it. The filling of the pie tasted very artificial to us. The artificial flavor was definitely coming from the pineapple jello. It may just be my family's personal taste. I think if I made this with orange jello and some mandarin oranges or even switched out with strawberry jello we would have liked it better. Something about the pineapple jello flavor profile just skewed the taste for us.
This recipe is wonderful. If you use the smaller pie shells and make 2 receipe's, you can make 3 pies. This is great for taking to Church socials. Everyone who has tried it has enjoyed it. You can make it less sweet by using only 8 oz of no sugar cool whip instead of 12 oz. It tastes just as good.
