My mother made this and it didn't set. I was not solid, it fell apart. Taste was great.. Not sure what she did to have it fall like that?

Love this recipe. I usually make in the summer at the campground. So easy to prepare and everyone has room for Jello.

This is in response to a preview comment. You make this in a 9in springform pan as it says in the directions. They are easy to find in almost any store.
