"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."

"Here on Long Island, we are finally done with a record-breaking heat wave. After a week of unrelenting 90+ degree temperatures, I made a Creamy Watermelon Pie. 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. This recipe is definitely a keeper!"

"A light and refreshing pie. I was unable to find watermelon jello so used melon fusion instead. It made the pie a pale green, it was pretty with the pink watermelon inside. 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."

"I made this and while it tasted delicious, it didn't set up as well as it should have. Maybe the heat??? I will try it again though because the flavor is so good and we always seem to have portions of watermelon left over after cutting into one. I couldn't find the watermelon jello so I used fruit punch flavored jello instead. Still tasted divine!!"

"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."
