Such a great summertime dessert. Quick & easy & so light. I followed the recipe exactly as written & my pie turned out great. I think the pie should be left to refrigerate overnight though, & I had quite a bit of filling left, so, we saved it for an ice cream topping! I garnished with raspberries as I used raspberry jello. Great to bring to a barbecue or fish fry. (:

I made this today and it is great! I used the 2/3 cup water, but I used only 2 ice cubes and 1/3 cup cold water. It did just fine.

Great recipe. Very happy to have dessert since sugar is an issue for me. I used sugar free cool whip. So simple. Thanks.
