    Yum. Easy, pretty and feels light. Made night before a work birthday and everyone loved. Be sure to save a few berries for garnish. I used a large sugar- free jello but used same amount of water as recipe. I also used Light Cool Whip. Wonder if you could just use the Cool Whip inside the filling instead of using heavier real whipping cream next time?

    Actually looking for a similar recipe I used to make. I did make it without the cream, although it seemed like it needed more liquid (was running from computer to kitchen and completely overlooked the cream). I will make again with maybe 2-3 cups water. Was simply delicious anyway. Very nice recipe. Thank you!

    Super-easy and delicious! I might try it without the cream. Thanks for posting!


I was raised in South Alabama around a family that loved to cook. My grandmother is the best (and most authentic) cook that I have ever known and if you check out my page alot of my recipes come from her. I started cooking at a pretty young age because I enjoyed the time in the kitchen with the great women in my family. To me cooking is so much more than a meal, it's time with women who have so much wisdom to pass on to me. My favorite part of the holidays is to be in the kitchen as my Grandmother and Aunt prepare the meal. The stories they tell and the cooking secrets they share are priceless.
