Everyone loved this fresh summery dessert but I couldn't fit the jello and cantaloupe into a regular pie shell. Only the cream cheese mixture fit. Next time I would be sure to use a deep dish pie shell or better yet make a graham cracker base in a pyrex dish cook it first then add the cheese mixture and jello. Read More

this recipe is similar to a strawberry dessert that i make so i made a pretzel crust instead of the pastry crust. i also made this in a 9 inch square pan instead of the pie pan based on other reveiws next time i will make in 9"x13" pan. overall a very refreshing dessert and i will definatly be making again and again.

Overall the pie tasted good. However next time I will use a deep dish pie crust. Also there was no more for the jello after the whip cream was in the pie crust so I scrapped the cream out of the crust and mixed it in with the jello. I also think that I will not add the cold water to the jello. Read More

Light and tasty pie! As others have already said the jello does not fit into a pie shell. (I used a deep dish pie shell and it still didn't fit.) I'd suggest either using a smaller box of jello or using a larger pan. It's good pie though! Read More
