RECIPE BACKSTORY
This recipe comes from Kraft Foods. It's a very light and fluffy cream pie using Jello and whipped cream. It can also easily be made into a Lemon Chiffon Pie by substituting lemon ingredients. Come to think of it, it could also be strawberry or cherry! I used Lite whipped topping. The site uses name brands, (Jell-o, Cool Whip), but I used store bought (Meijer) brands instead.
