"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!"

"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."

"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."

My family loved this cool dessert and it was devoured in one day. This pretty fluffy pink pie would also be perfect for a summer ladies luncheon or a baby shower.

I have also made this pie with other flavors like orange with mandarin oranges and strawberry and raspberry too. It is very versatile so adapt it to your favorites fruits."

"This pie is delicious, I can't get enough of it. A friend brought a pie to work. She used cherry jello. We liked it so much the next day she brought two, one with watermelon jello and one made with strawberry jello. My favorite is actually the one with cherry jello. It has more flavor and is a darker pink than the watermelon jellon. Don't be afraid to make it with a different flavor jello. Today I made one to take to a family reunion. I also made one with orange jello and mandarin oranges. I'm going to call that Mandarin Pie."
