Reviews for Cool and Creamy Watermelon Pie
"Very good summertime dessert. I cut watermelon and put on paper towels in colander while I made rest of pie. I had one problem and that was the jello did not dissolve well with only 1/4 cup of boiling water. It stuck to the bowl and spoon. Any answers to this?"
"Make you drain the watermelon WELL after dicing it. Place it into a colander to be sure all the extra juice is gone.Another important thing is to be SURE to cool the gelatin down completely before adding in your whipped topping or all you will get is SLUSH!The BEST gelatin to use, imo, is Jolly Rancher watermelon! It has the best flavor for this pie!This is a simple recipe that turns out WELL if you follow directions and will absolutely THRIL watermelon lovers in your family! It's delicious!"
"Might add a little More Watermelon gelatin next time but it made a great dessert, everyone liked it"
"This is the BEST pie ever for hot days of Summer. Followed the recipe exactly except used reduced fat graham cracker crust & light cool whip (dietary restrictions). Found the watermelon jello at Walmart, as other markets didn't carry it. It stayed in the fridge for a good 4 days. This is a keeper in my recipe file!Velma, thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us all."
"Haven't made this yet but wanted to know if I could freeze this pie??"
"Very easy and refreshing....I cubed watermelon two hrs before...and put in bowl in refrigerator......so natural watermelon juices could be used instead of the water.....it added extra flavor.....a keeper for sure....cherry jello adds more flavor and color....my favorite....tastes excellent with cherries pitted and cut in half."
"All I can say is ditto, ditto, and ditto again! My oldest son loves watermelon - about the only fruit he will eat. So easy, too! Everybody - put this one in your recipe boxes!"
"This was so easy, and my family Loved it"
"I'm sure because of the holiday weekend, watermelon at my supermarket looked sad, so I tried with strawberries. This pie is a definite keeper! So easy to make and most important, refreshing and delicious!"
"Why does recipe call for seeded watermelon? What do you do with the seeds? We buy seedless watermelons."
