Mama's Easy Cranberry Pie

1 package raspberry flavored gelatin
3/4 cup boiling water
½ cup cranberry sauce
½ cup cranberry juice cocktail
2 cups thawed whipped topping
1 baked pie shell

Sprinkle gelatin over boiling water and stir until well blended (about 2 minutes). Add cranberry sauce and stir until well blended. Add cranberry juice and stir. Finally, fold in whipped topping. Pour into a baked pie shell and chill for 4 hours before serving.

My mother, Doris Hill, collected this recipe and handwrote it on a card for her files.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
