Several years back, I was searching for a Cantaloupe Pie recipe to surprise my grandmother. Her mother made the pie all the time and as a young woman she remembers it being my Uncle Dennis' favorite pie. I requested the recipe in the Taste of Home Magazine and received over 600 responsed by mail! This pie isn't the same as my Grandmother remembered (we did find that one); However, was my favorite! A refreshing pie that's perfect to serve on a hot Texas summer night!

I found this recipe looking for something for a ripe cataloupe.It was great!Just a side note When I went to the pantry to get the clear gelatin i discovered that i didn't have any instead i used strawberry jello, it was not bad at all infact i think i will make it with other flavors .Thanks for the killer recipe again

This was good, but a little bland for our taste. The flavor of fresh cantaloupe certainly comes through! Since my cantaloupe was VERY juicy I used three envelopes of gelatin and it set nicely. I probably won't make this again, but recommend it for anyone who likes a light tasting, not very sweet, fruity pie.

I tried this and perhaps my cantaloupe was a little too ripe, when I brought it out of the refrig. & sliced it, the pie part slumped over. I threw it into the freezer to chill more firmly & by the time I got it out it was frozen solid. Let it thaw & it was still good!
