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 Jul. 11, 2014

"I have made this few times for small gatherings. Every time it was a hit. :)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 6, 2014

"Have taken this to a couple of large gatherings. I'm always ask for the recipe."

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!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 25, 2013

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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 30, 2013

"Delicious! The only recommendation is that I would make more of the cream cheese layer, so there would be enough to cover the crust."
