This fluffy creation is a variation on two recipes - a delicious four-layer dessert my mom used to make and a gelatin pie I came up with one day when I was short on ingredients. My family just loves it! -Rachel Lynn Rioux, Lisbon, Maine

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 27, 2013

"I've made this many times before and have changed it just a bit. I use sugar-free gelatin, lite cool-whip, lite yogurt, fat free cream cheese. I noticed this decreased the super sweetness from the original. We love it!"

"Very good. I doubled the cream cheese filling and only used a 6 oz. container of yogurt."
