crust got soggy,red jello seeped into cool whip. Looked icky and one taste and threw it out.
was so-so....good but not likely to make again
I followed directions and suggestions and still have a terriable mess! First, the crust was flaking off so its in every layer. I won't use a store bought crust again, I'll make my own! Then the time frame is way off, unless you have your house at 40*, room temp in July is not a good suggestion. I suggest refrigerate (or freeze) between layers for a min of 15 minutes. There is really no reason the blue layer shouldn't be semi-set. I hope its good, but I won't be taking it to my party, it will stay home I'll take something else.
This is a great pie to make! Some readers did give some helpful advice though. After making the red jello, I put it in the fridge for about 3-4 minutes, then SPOONED it onto the whipped cream very gently to avoid the "seep through" into the whipped cream. Don't pour it right from the bowl. After 2 hours, you have a great 3 color tier pie PERFECT for any patriotic celebration. It's a very light dessert that doesn't make you feel like you over-ate! Plus change the jello colors for different holidays!
This was not easy to "pour" into the layers or to serve.
It was pretty good, I had no problems with the layers, and it looks amazing after made. I loved it! I will definitely make this again!
I followed the recipe as it's given and my layer of coolwhip floated up to the top of my red layer. I suggest setting the first layer of jello spread on a layer of cool whip and throw in the freezer to get it a little solid and pour the second layer on VERY slowly so as not to put a hole in the coolwhip layer.
This was so simple to make and it only took me 30 minutes. I'm not sure why people had a hard time with the jello setting, but for me I had no problems. Not sure how it tastes yet because I haven't had any.. but I'm sure I will find out!
I made this for my family when we went for our fourth of July celebration. It was a hit! Everyone loved it! some extra toppings don't hurt either. I used the extra cool whip and berries to top it.
It is a shame that people have bad luck with this and the cool easy pie.It just takes common sense more than to the letter.You must let the blue SET then add cool whip.As for the red making the whip float to the top.Here is where common sense comes in.You must let it partially set in the bowl.I would say till slightly thicker than egg whites and either spoon or very gently pour.If its thick enough the whip will not float.
