Tasted great, but I recommend using a pre-made graham crust. If you make your own (like I tried), you can't pack the graham tight enough, and it absorbs all the blue jello in the first layer...
Definitely agree on the need for waiting a lot longer to have the gelatins set. Otherwise the red gelatin goes underneath of the whipped cream for an ugly layer effect.
It was a hit at our July 4 get together!
My family loved this pie and so easy to make!
Pretty, but not tasty. Very easy to make. The layers looked great. However, the Jello was the texture of gummy worms or Jigglers - chewy. Also, the blue jello soaked into the crust and made it green.
I too made this "easy" pie for our 4th celebration and it was just a complete mess. Not even my children who eat anything wanted to eat this. I spent over an hour trying to get the layers to set right. Also my crust was very soggy. I have made alot of recipes from this site and have love most of them. This one however was a huge disappointment and I would not recommend wasting time on it.
I made this pie for my family get together at my grandma'a on the sunday after july 4th. I thought it would be a great idea since it was july 4th. So I started making it and it takes alot longer than the recipe says. All the Jello needs to sit longer and make sure your red jello is nice and thick (like the video) because mine wasnt and when i poured it over the cool whip , the cool whip rose to the top. It was horrible. I was upset because it didnt look right. so before i served it i just smoothes a good thick layer of cool whip over the top to cover up my mess. my family loved it though and they said it tasted good. good luck!
No matter how hard I tried after reading other reviews the cool whip floated to the top, the pie crust was soggy and didn't cut right.
M family's consensus was that it was only so-so. It certainly looked good, and the fact that it was red, white and blue made it kind of appealing. The problem was the was only OK, nothing spectacular (and not nearly as tasty as it looked). Looks certainly can conceive! As far as preparation, I didn't have trouble with the whipping cream layer floating up into the red layer (as some reviewers mentioned). But I did have a problem that I didn't even know about until we finally sliced it up for serving. Apparently, the blue gelatin soaked a bit into the graham crust. Not a huge problem....just made the graham crust a bit chewy and feel "rubbery". Also, pouring the blue gelatin layer caused a small section of crust to give away (which I hadn't noticed at the time). And because of that, the blue gelatin slipped UNDER the crust in that spot. So about 1/4 of the pie had blue gelatin as the bottom layer, then the graham crust, then the whipped cream layer topped with the r
