    Is that a store bought crust o_O? Well mine is now in the fridge, chllin’. I used Dutch spiced biscuits mixed with McVities butter biscuits for the crust. I think my gelatin packets might be larger than yours. How much gelatin precisely did you use?

      So busted… Just makes it easier when offering as a hostess gift for an invite. No worries about retrieving my pie plate. And it’s 7 grams of gelatin in the packet.
