This is so good! It makes enough filling for two pies.

Not sure what went wrong. My milk never truely whipped. It seemed too soft. Once I added the gelatin mixture, it just all becam runny and wouldn't fold together. I did stir it up to combine and refrigerated it. It became and EXTRA SOFT pie, not fully set yet not runny. The taste was fine...nothing to write home about though. I think I'll delete this one from my recipe box.

well . . .the pie wasn't pink but that's bc I used lemon jello not strawberry. I used lemon bc I had half a package of lemon jello and I only wanted one pie. It didn't completely set for me either, but i didn't let the jello mix melt. Bf loved it and ate 4 pieces of it last night. So even though it didn't set (and it's probably bc I didn't make sure the jello mix was cool), this is a simple recipe that could have a great presentation if I'd just follow the directions. I'll probably make again and try to be less impatient in making it. Thanks for the recipe!

My Great grandmother would make this for me as a child during the holidays. She would add a can of drained crushed pineapple to it and it was like a party in your mouth! She was able to whip evaporated milk, I have never managed to accomplish that. I started using regular whipping cream instead but it is still so light tasting but with that " something extra special" added. I have to wonder how old the recipe is?

This pie wasn't bad for a last minute dessert. I actually halfed it and used 1/2 strawberry jello and 1/2 peach jello since there was enough for 2 pies (That way, I had 1 peach & 1 strawberry pie). I also made sure the jello mixture was at room temp. before folding in the fluffed evaporated milk. They both turned out great!!

My Grandma used to make me pink pie when I was a kid. It has been my favorite ever since. I add fresh fruit or fruit cocktail to mine. Thanks for the recipe!

My evaporated milk never whipped up, so my filling didn't set in the refrigerator. I put it in the freezer instead, and the filling reminds me of sherbet. Would be good with a citrus jello too. It was a little sweet so I would decrease the sugar to about 3/4 of a cup, and will definitely make this again. The kids loved it.
