Light Strawberry Gelatin Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
There's plenty of sweet berry flavor in this refreshing dessert. Made with sugar-free gelatin and a graham cracker crust, the summery pie is easy to fix and attractive enough to serve to guests. I sometimes substitute fresh peaches and peach gelatin. —D. Smith, Feasterville-Trevose, Pennsylvania.

"I really don't have anything to add to what 73 people have said already, except - EVERYONE SHOULD TRY THIS PIE!!! It has everything: ease & simplicity of preparation, saves time by being made ahead, coolness on a hot day, light and refreshing with the fresh strawberries at all times! D. Smith, you're the best!"

MY REVIEW

"I followed this exactly as is EXCEPT I used regular strawberry jello and regular graham cracker crust (not sugar free). Our little family of 4 nearly finished this pie in one sitting. So good and super easy to make. I can't wait to make this for my Mom who is mindful of her sugar levels."
