The recipe is good, but then again it is Jello-O, how could it not be good. Two major problems with the receipe. First, it DOES NOT take 5-10 minutes for the blue layer of Jello-O to firm up. It is more like 20-25 minutes! Second, the Cool Whip floats up to the top of the red layer so the pie does not look nearly as good as the picture, in fact it looks pretty gross.
