Whether it’s an ice cream sundae, wiggling bowl of Jell-O or delicious pie, a dollop of Cool Whip is the perfect topping to any dessert. This summer, sweeten up some of your favorite treats with a helping of the light, fluffy goodness or trying using it as a main ingredient. If you need some inspiration, look no further than the Whitestone Country Inn located in Kingston, TN, where guests rave about their Whitestone Delight Pie featuring pecans, coconut and, of course, Cool Whip!
