Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is a simple and fantastic recipe! As another reviewer had, I opted to use a pre-made Oreo Cookie crust to save some time. When I'm feeling more adventurous, I'll definitely try out the recommended crust. I also reduced the calories by using Jello's Fat-Free, Sugar-Free Instant Pistachio pudding and Eddy's Slow-Churned French Vanilla ice cream. Absolutely delicious and not a health-buster! Definitely going to be a go-to dessert this summer. Thanks, L'OL!
my sons remembered this dessert from 20 years ago and wanted me to make it again. didn't have recipe, so found this one. it's great.
made this for new years eve dinner. it was wonderful. the only thing i did differently was to use oreo cookies for the crust and i cooked the crust which made it very hard to cut but still tasted good. i made the filling exactly like the recipe and it received rave reviews. if i make it again i will not cook the crust or i will follow the recipe exactly like i am supposed to.thank you lol
