Overkill on the gelatin and sugar both - cut them by half for better consistency and flavor. 1/4 oz = 1 envelope is enough to get 1 c of liquid (for reference, that's double the gelatin used for jello). The 2oz=8 envelopes recommended here would harden 8c of liquid - this recipe has just 3 cups.
I scaled this recipe in half as it is just me and the kids. We all really liked it! I made my life very easy by using a purchased (German) applesauce, and it came together in no time at all. Nice and light.
ZWT4: My daughter & I made this for the Cooking with Kids Challenge. She liked it! It was a fun recipe to make together!
