Velvety Orange Gelatin Pie

It's hard to resist this light and fluffy citrus treat. It's easy enough for weeknights but impressive enough for company. Best of all, I can throw the dessert together and set it in the refrigerator a day early. -Jean Shourds of Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan

    I've made this about 5 times since I found this recipe! This is the first pie that my boyfriend has ever asked about! He came from the store with double the ingredients to have on hand! Haha It's a no-fail pie, always remember to get the deep dish pie crust. I've substituted the sour cream with plain non fat Greek yogurt just fine. This works with a myriad of gelatin flavors. This pie is quick enough to make at home, yet substantial enough to take to a gathering, just decorate the top a little with extra whip or fruit garnishing. Thank you for posting this recipe, we LOVE IT!

    Made this for Labor Day....sad to say, only one piece eaten. Nothing to rave about, but it may have had too much dessert competition (strawberry trifle & mint chocolate pie).

    I made this for a light treat on Mother's Day and everyone raved about it. I used the pre-made crust with 2 extra servings and had no problems with it overflowing. Next time I'm going to try with van yogurt instead of the sour cream. I'll be making this again and again!

    I've made this for a few years now and everytime I get rave reviews. I've even made it with different flavors like lemon and strawberry. All turn out wonderful!

    This is so good and refreshing on a hot summer day. I used the pre-made crust with 2 extra servings and had no problems with it overflowing.

    Fell in love with recipe and had to make it right away only haven't been to the store in days so I didn't have orange gelatin and used mango flavor instead; substituted plain greek-style yogurt for the sour cream; used dream whip (1 pkg) instead of frozen whipped topping. It was great - we fought over who would lick the spoon! Used a store-brand graham cracker crust and filling overflowed - will make own crust next time. And next time will be very soon!
