I did not add the 1/2 cup cold water, instead I put the gelatin mixture into a measuring cup and added enough ice cubes to equal 1 cup. Let the ice cubes melt, removed the ones that didn't and transfered the liquid to a mixing bowl large enough to add the cool whip to. After mixing in the cool whip, I added about 2 cups of the chopped fresh strawberries vs. only using 1 cup. Put that mixture in the fridge for about 45 minutes to set and then spooned into the Oreo pie crust. Then topped with sliced strawberries and put back in the fridge to continue setting over night. Took it to my in-law's house and it was a hit! I will definitely make this pie again and again!

The gelatin mixture did not mold. It tastes good but I was definitely disappointed with the consistency. Any ideas? I followed all the directions?? :( Response from Kraft Kitchens Expert, Mary It's very important to use correct water amounts. Using too much water will result in a loose consistency. Also, be sure to thoroughly dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water before adding the cold water and ice cubes. Undissolved gelatin will also result in a loose set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In the early 1980's I discovered this recipe from a jello package. In the early 1980's I discovered this recipe from a jello package. I have made it several times then, but for the last 15 years I lost the recipe and was happy to find it on your website. It has always been one of my quick, easy and, most importantly, delicious dessert. My friends and family can't get enough when I prepare this dessert. During this strawberry season I have made it my goal to make it every week. I will be bringing it to Church, Work and all social gatherings I will be attending during the summer. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will be passing down this recipe to my two daughters.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Am I crazy? Am I crazy? I followd these measurements. I couldn't find one 3 oz. Pkg of jello at my store. The boxes i found were .6 oz., meaning it took 5 boxes of jello to make 3 oz. Maybe those who make jello often would have realized the problem, but I only knew something was wrong by the way it set up. INSTANTANIOUSLY! I ended up with chunks of the foulest tasting sweet-sour artificial tasting filling ever. The only redeeming thing was that it was so bad we all had a great laugh (at my expense.) Someone fix the quantity of jello, please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, fruity and delicious Have been making for years as family favorite. First found on back of cool whip lid. Very flexible--can add extra fruit, make with fresh peaches and even fill individual desserts with chocolate cups. It travels well as the cool whip does not melt down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I had the same problem that some others did with the pie not setting up. I had the same problem that some others did with the pie not setting up. It was very runny. I made it twice also and the second time it kind of set up, but nothing like the picture. When we went to cut it, it was not solid at all. What did the others do to make it work? I made it for Memorial Day Celebration and was disappointed that it did not turn out, it looked so good in the picture. I bought the ingredients twice. Please tell me your secret, Kraft. Thanks, Angelfish 2008.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an AWESOME pie, so smooth and creamy. This is an AWESOME pie, so smooth and creamy. I added more strawberries than the recipe called for, and I used regular cool whip instead of the lite. You must prepare the jello how you would if you were actually making the quick set jello-with the hot water and ice cubes- not sure why so many people had such a hard time to get the pie to set, I did have to leave it in the fridge for a little longer than the recipe called for, but I had no trouble getting it to set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe! Great recipe!! Was all pumped about making it so you can imaging my disappointment when I had no strawberry Jello. No worries I had raspberry so I suppose I made a COOL N' EASY TWO BERRIES PIE. What ever you might call the pie easy is the operative word. BTW thanks for the coupons, next time I am at the store I can get 3 boxes of Jello for money off. Last time I went grocery shopping I saved $42.13 with coupons many were printed right here on this site.
