This is good. The next time I make this I will use my hand mixer to mix together the canned cranberry sauce and the jello. I didn't do that, just used a spoon, and now I have big bites of the canned cranberry sauce. I want it spread out more evenly. Otherwise, a good no bake pie, especially for the holidays.

Very light and sweet, with a slight tartness from cranberries but very delicious and not overpowering.

Made this for Christmas dinner this year and it was a big hit. Some were skeptical of a cranberry sauce pie at first, but after one bite they discovered a great sweet, tart flavor.

This was delicious and it is pretty. Make sure you use the larger graham cracker crust. I also used strawberry gelatin when I didn't have raspberry.
