"Excellent 5 star recipe! I sprayed a 9" springform pan with cooking oil and then pressed the graham cracker crumb mixture into the bottom. I added one tablespoon of sugar and about 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the whipping cream. I arranged several pieces of the jello on the top. Made a beautiful presentation! Everyone loved it! Will make again!"
