My mother treated us to strawberry desserts each spring, and this was the one we always looked forward to. I tried making it with the chocolaty cookie crust and now make it that way all the time. It's a winner. --Judith Kapcsos Colorado City, Arizona

I really want to give this 5 stars... but there is a typo (it HAS to be a typo). 1/2 cup cookie crumbs isn't nearly enough. My guess would be that you need 2 or 3 times that many to make up a crust. BUT the taste of this pie is GREAT. LOVE it. Read More

FANTASTIC! My family requests this pie all the time! I agree you need more cookies for the yummy crust or using a ready made crust works great too. I even used a regular pie crust and it turned out SUPER! You can get really creative with toppings on here too! (Choc. Jimmies, Chocolate shavings, drizzle of chocolate or home made strawberry syrup - Endless!) Read More

We liked this a bunch! I started with a pre-bought Oreo cookie crust since that seemed simpler. I baked it unfilled for about 5 minutes (with an egg wash) so it would be crispier. Then I followed the instructions as written. Very yummy and light. I think you could substitute fat-free Cool Whip for a healthier version, too. I'm actually making 2 of these pies again today! This time, I doubled the recipe -- It doubled just fine. I did add a bit more smashed strawberries than the recipe called for b/c I wanted a slightly more berry taste than when I made it the first time. I will serve each slice with a fresh strawberry on top. It was a huge hit last weekend, and I'm sure it will be again tomorrow night! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

came out too runny and had to freeze it overnight, it was more like a frozen pie than a fluffy pie. I think it may have been that the strawberries were too watery, or I did not fold in the cream well enough. I may or may not try again, its too bad because these strawberries were handpicked and so sweet. Read More

This pie was absolutely wonderful! It disappeared VERY quickly at the family gathering - I wish I had made two pies. Not everyone got to try it and were disappointed. I didn't have time to make the crust so I just bought one. And I had to double this recipe to fill the pie (if you look, you will see that it says it serves 3, so just change it to 6 and Voila!)

This is a fantastic recipe! You have to double it to fit a normal pie tin. It's so good - the fresh mashed strawberries make it super fresh tasting and give it true strawberry flavor. Read More
