A drizzle of spreadable fruit lends a decorative and tasty touch to this appealing dessert from Ruby Fleeman of Santa Ana, Texas. One slice of the creamy and refreshing pie just won't be enough! "It's great for diabetics," Ruby says, "but even the rest of my family enjoys it."

MY REVIEW

I love this recipe. It's easy & delicious and I've made it several times using different flavored jellos. I'm not a fan of cottage cheese but it's not a factor using it this way.

This is a wonderful pie! My blender would not blend the cottage cheese, so I added the partially set gelatin to the cottage cheese in the blender and it came out great.
