Reviews for Crown Jewel Gelatin Pie
"I was given this recipe about 15 yrs ago and have been making it about 10 times each and every summer since then. The whole family loves it. If I know friends will be coming over I have to request nobody touches the dessert."
"Many years ago, when I worked in the kitchen at a Hospital, we made and served something similar. It was always a favorite of patients and cafeteria patrons alike."
