It was a bit too strong for my taste -- both too tart and too sweet at the same time. Maybe next time I will try adding more whipped topping to tone it down a little. Also I had to stick it in t...

Delicious light and easy pie. Another good point is that it isn't too tart. Frozen whipped topping is not available where I live, so I used 2 cups stiffy whipped cream (about 1 cup whipping crea...

My husband's favorite Thanksgiving pie. he even makes it. Instead of cranberry gelatin, he substitutes raspberry. And he uses a graham cracker crust. Never any leftovers.

My grandma always made this pie for Thanksgiving. As a child I thought that it was the best tasting thing on earth. Most kids love it as well as adults. I think she used Raspberry jello inste...

My family loved this dessert. I didn't have enough whipped topping, so I sub'd sour cream. I served with a dollop of whipped topping on each piece and sprinkled with chopped pecans. Yum.
