While he was growing up, this was my husband's favorite Christmas dessert. When we married, his mother passed it on to me. I take it to family gatherings during the holidays and have yet had any to bring home! It's a cool recipe for summer as well. —Victoria Newman, Antelope, California

"I made this pie as directed and the cream was wonderful with the raspberry, but putting the jello on top of the cream was a real mess. It ran all over the top and didn't look very nice when it was finished. I think it would help if you chilled the jello layer a little before putting on top of the cream layer. The taste was very good, but it didn't look very nice."

"Made for Thanksgiving for the first time. Huge Hit. Everyone loved it! Even the people of diets loved it because it wasn't too sweet. I will be adding this too my collection and look forward to making it again!"

"Absolutely wonderful. We have made it for several yrs. My brother in law told my mother in law that it was the best pie she ever made."

"I have made this pie for years. In fact, the first time was after I had eaten it somewhere I decided to recreate it myself. My ingredients were very much the same as these. I do prefer the pastry crust to a cookie or graham cracker. They're too sweet in my opinion. The downside of putting this pie together is spreading on the second cream layer. Could be very messy. To solve that problem, I now put the second half of the cream cheese layer into a baggie, cut off one corner and pipe the mixture. Then it's easy to smooth out before adding the last of the raspberry mixture. So-o-o delicious!"

"Are you able to substitute with strawberries and strawberry jello?"
