    I recently made this for my quilt group and everyone loved it and wanted the Recipe! I cut the sugar in the filling just a tad so it sets up better at high altitude, where I live. A real winner for the ladies!

    This is so good! I make it with strawberries instead of raspberries though.

    This is now a family favorite! My mom asks for it all the time and we seem to always have it. Awesome recipe!

    This was FABULOUS. I thought it might be a touch seedy from all the raspberries, but it wasn't. My mom doesn't like raspberry but this can be made with other fruits/gelatins (like strawberries).
