Just the recipe I was looking for. My changes: Used a graham craker crust and "whipped" a regular 8 Oz. block of cream cheese. Added an oatmeal cookie crumb topping because I had a few stale cookies around. Delcious and I like the fact that it uses gelatin instead of pudding or condensed milk the cream cheese (which I didn't use low fat)was enough dairy calories in this pie. My jello was tropical pineapple so it had kind of a tropical summery tang. Read More

I make this everytime there is a potluck at work and the only thing I change is switch out the pineapple geletin for orange and it tastes great! Yes, there is a lot of filling left over but I put it into dessert cups and enjoy it at home because there is never any pie left over. Read More

I am a college student and decided to make this pie as my contribution to my family's Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone loved it and said it was a great alternative to the usual holiday desserts. It was so cheap and easy to make. I used a no bake graham cracker crust and it was wonderful. I will definately be making this again perhaps with different types of fruit to experiment. Thanks for the great recipe!! Read More

This recipe is wonderful. If you use the smaller pie shells and make 2 receipe's you can make 3 pies. This is great for taking to Church socials. Everyone who has tried it has enjoyed it. You can make it less sweet by using only 8 oz of no sugar cool whip instead of 12 oz. It tastes just as good. Read More

I made this for a dinner party and the hostess asked for the recipe! It was a hit! Very fluffy and perfect for summer. Not overpoweringly sweet but decievingly rich so cut small slices. I made my own graham cracker crust and the filling was the perfect amount for the 9-inch pie plate I used. A great summer recipe and it requires so few ingredients! Thanks for sharing! Read More

Everyone seemed to really rate this recipe high but we just weren't a big fan of it. The filling of the pie tasted very artificial to us. The artificial flavor was definitely coming from the pineapple jello. It may just be my family's personal taste. I think if I made this with orange jello and some mandarin oranges or even switched out with strawberry jello we would have liked it better. Something about the pineapple jello flavor profile just skewed the taste for us. Read More

Made this last night and is the easiest pie I ever made. I gave it 4 stars only because the crushed pineapple in it made the consistency with little lumps all in it. Next time I will try and use the cut pineapple that is not such small pieces. Also I couldn't find pineapple jello so I used strawberry. Was delicious. Read More
