Reviews for Blueberry Cloud Pie
"If you don't have the time to make the rice crispy crust you could buy a store bought short bread crust. Overall super easy and I love the blue color! It would also be great for a baby shower for someone who's having a boy."
"If you don't have the time to make the rice crispy crust you could use a store bought shortbread crust. Love the color of the pie and super easy!"
"What a unique dessert! Super pretty, easy to make. Everyone loved it! Can't wait to make this one again."
"I made this for my brother, he liked it a lot.To cut down on time and speed things up, put the JELLO in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Also, place the bowl and beaters you're going use to beat the cream in the freezer for about 5 minutes."
"my husband made this last night for me for my birthday and my family really liked the flavor, but i have a question - how firm/thick is the filling supposed to get? our pie was pretty runny. VERY GOOD, but runny."
"This is a very easy pie to make and so delicious and light. I made if for hubby and I and we finished it in two days. I will definately make again and again."
"I'm confused. The recipe calls for 2 cups of cream, then in the directions it states to fold in 3 cups of cream.Also, does cool whip really make a good substitute for the cream in this recipe? There's just way too much fat in this recipe for me to make this with cream."
"Using Cool Whip would make it a bit lighter, and easier...but it's a keeper at our house!"
"I used raspberry gelatin and fresh raspberries and produced a super pie. I will try it again with other berry/gelatin combos. So many possibilities.Thanks, Denise."
"This recipe is so great! I also made one with orange and pineapple."
"Delicious. Made it with sugar free cool whip though and worked great, plus cut way down on the calories."
"Has anyone tried it with an oreo pie crust?"
"We liked it even though none of us are big fans of blueberries. I think we are going to try it with strawberries next. Be sure to read the directions before making. It took a lot longer than I realized."
"this is delicious my family wanted me to try variations of this"
