I made this recipe and used strawberry cream cheese instead of plain cream cheese and it was wonderful. I used 12oz.instead of 8oz and added a pkg of lemon jello to the pudding by mixing with 1/2 cup hot water to mix it then 1/2 cup ice cold to cool it before putting it into the pudding.I also decreased the liquid in the pudding by 1/2 cup.It was a big hit at 4th of July BBQ.
I made this recipe for Mother's Day, but I made it as 2 - 8inch pies. The folks gathered loved it. I only had one suggestion, increase the lemon flavor a little more. I too believe, it would have been much better if there had been a "stronger" lemon flavor. Next time I make it, I will add a teaspoon or two of REAL LEMON or lemon extract.
OMG!!! I made this for a potluck dessert and it was wonderful. It was very easy to make and everyone just loved it. I wasn't able to find the strawberry Cool Whip at my store so I just pureed a cup of frozen sliced strawberries (not the kind with syrup) and mixed it in with regular Cool Whip. I will definately be making this again. <<< Response from Kraft Kitchens Expert, Michele ~ Great way to improvise! We are sorry, but Strawberry Cool Whip is no longer available. We have adjusted the recipe to use regular Cool Whip. Enjoy! >>>
This is a wonderful dessert! I did make a few changes. I used the alternate crust made of flour & toasted pecan added 1/4c. dry lemon jello to the pudding for a more lemony flavor. Folded in 1/4c. dry strawberry jello into the cool whip and decreased the milk to 2 1/2cups to make a firmer lemon pudding layer adding the lemon jello also helps firm up this layer. Very yummy and easy to make!
everyone loved it at our church potluck dinner. Had a little problem with my crust falling a little bit apart. Must've done something wrong; no one notice but me too busy enjoyin this GREAT dessert!!!
Since I couldn't find strawberry cool whip, I decided to switch this up a bit for an Easter get together. First layer of graham cracker crumbs was the same. Next layer I substituted coconut milk for the milk and added coconut sweetened flakes. Then Vanilla pudding and finally CHOCOLATE Cool Whip finished with semi sweet chocolate shavings. An Easter EGG. It was delicious!
I printed this recipe and was disappointed that the comments were printed along with the recipe. Also the numbers 1-6 of 21 and an arrow were printed as well by the make it section. Please correct this as I would like to reprint this recipe without the added comments and numbers. Thank you ! will revisit this recipe so I can see if it has been corrected.
Use Hersheys' Strawberry Syrup and mix with regular Cool Whip as a substitute for the Strawberry Cool Whip.
I make this with sugar-free pudding (no crust to cut on carbs) and I make up sugar-free jello, letting it set up a bit, then blend into the cool whip. Very good.
Regarding the discontinued Strawberry CoolWhip (don't you hate when they do that?) has anyone tried mixing some strawberry flavored gelatin into plain CoolWhip?
