well...the pie wasn't pink but that's bc I used lemon jello not strawberry. I used lemon bc I had half a package of lemon jello and I only wanted one pie. It didn't completely set for me either but i didn't let the jello mix melt. Bf loved it and ate 4 pieces of it last night. So even though it didn't set (and it's probably bc I didn't make sure the jello mix was cool) this is a simple recipe that could have a great presentation if I'd just follow the directions. I'll probably make again and try to be less impatient in making it. Thanks for the recipe!
As a child it wasn't Christmas unless my great grandmother made her pink pie. I have to imagine it came out after gelatin did. The difference between her recipe and these is this. She would cook 3 whole eggs with the sugar and can of crushed pineapple. Of course on low and stirring constantly then add jello. After mixture had cooled fold into whipped evaporated milk. It was the very taste of Christmas in your mouth!!
Not sure what went wrong. My milk never truely whipped. It seemed too soft. Once I added the gelatin mixture it just all becam runny and wouldn't fold together. I did stir it up to combine and refrigerated it. It became and EXTRA SOFT pie not fully set yet not runny. The taste was fine...nothing to write home about though. I think I'll delete this one from my recipe box.
Great last minute recipe. YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS COLD ECSPECIALLY THE MILK! THE STRAWBERRY MIX MUST ALSO COOL DOWN! A lot of people commented that it didn't set fold together good or milk didn't fluff and it is probably because the mix was too hot or the milk wasn't cold enough. Tasted great and my two year old loved helping and tasting.
This pie wasn't bad for a last minute dessert. I actually halfed it and used 1/2 strawberry jello and 1/2 peach jello since there was enough for 2 pies (That way I had 1 peach & 1 strawberry pie). I also made sure the jello mixture was at room temp. before folding in the fluffed evaporated milk. They both turned out great!!
My evaporated milk never whipped up so my filling didn't set in the refrigerator. I put it in the freezer instead and the filling reminds me of sherbet. Would be good with a citrus jello too. It was a little sweet so I would decrease the sugar to about 3/4 of a cup and will definitely make this again. The kids loved it.
