I thought I was on a different recipe...LOL I would use 1 cup of heavy cream whipped. I really don't like Cool Whip.

try 2 cups of heavy cream, whipped, instead of cool whip. And for the caramel topping...make it yourself or make sea salt caramel for the topping!!!!! And I bet you will think you have gone to a sweet shop in Heaven.

sounds scrumptious. Being a New Zealander if was pleased to read Q. from faym and answer from knitting poodle but could you please advise the quantity in a 'container' of cool whip (or whipped cream as I will have to use???

it says a container and i believe that they come in 2 different sizes, a 16oz tub and a larger one maybe 24 oz. they are in tubs with covers on them. but like poodle said , if you cant find the brand name then I'm sure that a homemade whip cream will be just as great.

Yvonne--for this recipe, I would use an 8 oz. container of Cool Whip.

Could you please define cool whip. I am in New Zealand where we don't have anything with that name. Is it whipped cream? I would love to try some of your recipes if only I knew a substitute for the cool whip. Thanks

Cool Whip is a brand name. It is a creamy non dairy whipped topping. Similar to creme fresh or whipped cream. It is slightly sweet with a hint of vanilla. It freezes well and is good on everything! Hope this helped. I have used fluffy whipped cream in it's place before and got wonderful results. I haven't on this recipe, but I would say it's worth a try. How could it be bad? lol

faym,,,,I think using heavy cream would be whip 2 cups of heavy cream.

mom has been making this pie for years.One of our favorites,we have even added a small can of well drained crushed pineapple to it delicious! We keep it in the freeer, almost like real creamy ice cream. Give it a try!!

@Emma Lee: You can chill this recipe in the refrigerator. Hope this helps! -- Editor of RecipeLion

by chill for 2 hours does it mean in the fridge or in the freezer???

@Jring, Thanks for your comment. Condensed milk is simply shorthand for sweetened condensed milk. We've updated the recipe to eliminate any further confusion. Thanks! --Editor of RecipeLion

Don't you mean sweetened condensed milk? Like Eagle Brand type.
