    Great spring time dessert!

    Jan Wilkins from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    This is a great spring time dessert...after all the heavy, darker desserts of winter...don't get me wrong, it is by no means "Light", it just gives a nice "springy" presentation!!

    Cheese, Gelatin and Fruit Pie

    Kathleen Lamontagne from South Hadley, MA

    I had tried this recipe for Christmas and it didn't gel. I then tried it again for my church and purchased new unflavored gelatin. The recipe has a very good taste, but stating that it's a "pie" doesn't ring true to me. When I cut into it, it all squishes out the sides. I plan to use this recipe again, but use it in a trifle dish instead of a springform cake pan. The texture is more like a pudding to me than a "pie".

    SUMMER HIT!

    Ms. Blaschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    We have enjoyed this recipe a few times now - with one exception. I am allergic to pineapple so I substituted orange gelatin for the pineapple and it is just a wonderful treat! Using the blender to mix the ingredients until smooth is so easy. What a great easy to make summer dessert! There have never been leftovers with this one. It is THAT good.

    Fruit Pie

    J. E. Cash from ARLINGTON, MA

    This is a much better recipe than it's title leads one to believe. when I read, "cheese, gelatin, and fruit" I wasn't enthused to try it, yet once I read recipe it sounded simple and yet perfect for a hot day. It was both!

    Cheese,Gelatin and Fruit Pie

    JANIE SHARPE from BLUE RIDGE SUMMIT, PA

    I made this easy and very tasty pie for friends, for a evening picnic. I started making the pie in the morning of the day, I knew it had plenty of time to sit up or firm up. I did as the directions called, but it never got firm. Caution don't blend it to long in the blender or on high speed, I do believe that was my problem. The pie is very good, so we ate it soupy with a spoon.
