This is a great recipe especially for diabetics. It is light and refreshing! I will make this again. It's also a great looking desert. I arranged my strawberries in a lovely pattern. I followed the directions completely. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm sure this is very good. I'll let you know as soon as I get back from the store to buy more cottage cheese, pie crust, and jello mix! I followed the directions on the box and now I got twice as much, watered down, filling! It's sitting in the refrigerator now and probably won't set up! DON"T FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE BOX, JUST ONE CUP OF HOT AND COLD WATER, JUST AS THE RECIPE SAYS!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good easy recipe to make. Not gourmet, just a good recipe to have for a go-to. I froze the crusts first like one reviewer said to help with the sogginess. They make oversize crists and I would recommend using those. The pie was so full it leaked jello on the floor and the fridge shelf when I carried it over. Good thing my wife was not home at the time. So, put it on a cookie sheet or something when you carry it, but the oversize crusts will help with this. Make sure you make the first batch of jello (the one that goes in the blenderexactly as the recipe states , and not the instructions on the box. Also 12 oz container of cottage cheese? All the stores I go to only sell 16 oz. So I don't know if this is a mistake or what, but I only used 12 oz. Maybe you could use 16 oz if you used oversize crusts. item not reviewed by moderator and published

my 12 yr old daughter saw this one on tv one day and asked me to get the ingredients when we were out shopping...she made it all by herself and when she served it to the family i was wowed, this looked like something u would have bought or ordered from a store or resturante...its a beautiful dessert, and the family loved it, it was gone in the same day! this dessert has been added to our family holiday menu for now on! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's a great healthy dessert. I made it for a bbq and everyone loved it. However, I thought it was good, but not great. Personally, Im not a big fan of gelatin so that's probably why I didn't like the taste as much. Also, the "cheesecake part," the bottom layer didn't really taste like cheesecake. You must eat all the layers together for each spoonful because that's what makes it taste really good. The crust is perfect for this dessert so don't omit it! I might substitute in cream cheese instead of cottage cheese next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
