1 pkg. (4 serving size)

1 (8 ounce) tub
COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
1 (6 ounce)
HONEY MAID Graham Pie Crust
We love this pie. I like to make this with a pretzel crust and stud the top of the pie with fresh cut strawberries. Sometimes, I'll fold in some chopped strawberries into the pie, too. NOTE: DO NOT wisk the Cool-Whip into this pie. You want to fold it so that the whipped topping dosen't break down and become runny. You want it fluffy.
Do NOT use a whisk to mix the Cool Whip in! All that did was turn it into liquid, which made it nearly impossible to thicken to mounding. It mounded a bit, and when I poured it into the prepared crust, there was WAY too much (like a cup too much) for the crust. I even had to spoon some of it out so that it didn't spill in my fridge. I refrigerated it for 5 hours. When we cut into it, the filling was still entirely liquid (and there is nothing wrong with my refrigerator!). My guests ate it to be polite, but I didn't bother. They reported that the taste was good, but...who wants to eat pink, runny Jell-O water? IF I try this pie again, I will gently fold the Cool Whip in and probably leave out the cold water entirely or replace it with 1/4 cup ice cubes. I would also suggest refrigerating all night or freezing it. It was a complete disaster by the given directions.
Ive been making this pie for 15 years. its very light and creamy. Kids love it. I dont use ice cubes anymore, it works great with just cold water.
I have made this as a pie and also as indivudual mini pies using raspberry Jell-o. I used a mini muffin tin lined wiwth paper cups. I made a graham cracker crust, added about 1.5 tablespoons per pie, and packed the crust using a Pampered Chef tool. I baked at 375 for about four minutes. Prepare the pie as directed. Once the mini pies are filled, I placed a raspberry in the middle of each one. Once the pies were set, I drizzled them with melted milk chocolate. They were a great mini dessert and a huge hit. The dessert is very light, making it great after a heavy meal. Also very refreshing.
Love this recipe. Using the light cool whip and sugar free jello, you get a sweet, yet extremely low calorie dessert. For the reviewer who gave it one star and had runny pie, I wonder if you noticed the water ratio is not the same as on the jello box? I have never had this recipe fail, and I do use a whisk to stir in the cool whip. Give it another go before you give up on this recipe!
This recipe was excellent. I brought it along as dessert for a full Thanksgiving dessert and got rave reviews. I did made it in a chocolate graham cracker crust, and garnished it with drizzled chocolate. It was light and fluffy and just the thing after a huge meal.
Tasty, refreshing, light - great summer dessert! :)
I used a pre-made chocolate pie crust for this pie. After all, who doesnt like strawberries and chocolate? This recipe was easy to make. My children all enjoyed it. I thought it was lacking a bit of something.
