Do-ahead and delicious, this dessert is a favorite because of its pretty color, creamy texture and terrific flavor. A light, no-bake filling makes it easy. Try garnishing with fresh berries and sprigs of mint. —Julianne Johnson, Grove City, Minnesota

"I made this for Christmas dinner at my sister's house. It was a little sweet, but definitely worth making again. Very pretty in addition to being very yummy."

"I didn't have unflavored gelatin, but had a box of sugar free strawberry jello. I used that instead. I did everything the same but used strawberries instead and cool whip instead of whipped cream. Turned out delicious..."

"Made this for Easter lunch today and it was a big hit. i used 8 oz lite cool whip, light cream cheese and only 1/3rd cup sugar in the filling and it turned out great! I will definitely make this again."

"Must admit I cheated. Used a graham cracker crust I purchased, bought a bag of frozen raspberries frozen plain and a container of Cool Whip. Put frozen berries in a bowl, added half a cup of sugar and got a good amount of juice from the defrosting berries. Put that juice with the gelatin and water and after 5 minutes heated the gelatin and stirred until dissolved. Whipped the cream cheese in a stand mixer. Added the semi-defrosted berries to the gelatin mix and it jelled sufficiently right away so added it to the cream cheese, beat everything smooth then folded in the Cool Whip and placed in pie shell. Delicious and very quickly done! It is resting in the refrigerator and prior to serving will place fresh raspberries over the top. Wait until my grandkids see this!"
