    I have been making this for my family for years and years. Its literally the Kraft Jello recipe that I cut out of a magazine so many years ago...except this person doubled it. It is delicious and my family always requests it. But it's not an original recipe by any means--must give credit where credit is due and that is to Kraft Jello.

    My daughter made this for a recent dinner. It was delicious. The only thing she did different was to cut back on the sugar. We all loved it.

    Fresh & delicious! The fresh berries made it the perfect summer treat! But I would use the 10-in. pie crusts that I saw at the grocery store next time because I had a lot of the liquid leftover when I used the 9-in. pie crusts.

    A great pie. It is quick and easy to make. I made my own graham cracker crust:1 1/4 c graham crackers, 1/3 c melted butter, 1/4 packed brown sugar. Mix all together, press into 9" pan bake at 375 for 5 min. It is rare when I use a recipe without changing it. This one is perfect. We served it with a little bit of whipped cream. Excellent!
