It's a pie that kind of looks like a cake but is not. It's definetely not a traditional looking pie as I used a springform pan for this recipe. You can use a 9" springform pan, or you can use a deep dish pie pan or quiche pan of the same size. Since I haven't used gelatin in such a long time I looked at other recipes that used gelatin to give me ideas on how to use it. It turned out beeter than I thought. Cooking time includes refrigeration.
