Notes

Here are a couple of tips for making this easy pie recipe:

  • Make sure you use actual Cool Whip and not just whipped cream. The pie won’t set up as well with whipped cream.
  • Be sure to use the lemon juice. It’s what sets the pie and there really isn’t any other substitute for it.
  • If you don’t like coconut, you can use marshmallows.
  • You don’t have to garnish the top with extra whipped cream, cherries and nuts but it does make a pretty presentation.
  • This recipe literally takes 5 minutes to make if you are using a pre-made pie crust. If you make your own graham cracker crust, you need to add about 5 more minutes.
