This was a wonderful recipe. I thought that the pie would be better with half a package of unflavored gelatin and I also added a 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I mixed the gelatin into a couple of TBS of hot milk. I then mixed the pie ingredients in my food processor adding the cool whip last. The pie was very easy to cut after it chilled and was delicious.
