Excellent summer dessert! I took the suggestion of decreasing the hot water so it set well and in good time. You can exchange the strawberries for mandarin oranges and use orange geletin for a nice change. Read More

The pie was okay. But it took a lot longer than recipe said for the mixture to harden. But pie was fairly good. Read More

The pie was very tasty! The only thing is that is took much longer than 20 minutes to firm. Maybe it was just me but we even put in in the refrigerator and it still didn't firm. But it was very easy and very tasty. If you like strawberry you'll love this recipe!! Read More

I found it to work much better when I eventually froze it as it never really appeared set in the fridge despite 5 hours of chilling. Read More

This is an easy and delicious make ahead dessert but I substituted a walnut crust for the graham cracker crust == even MORE scrumptious!!! The strawberries with the walnuts = an interesting complimentary and unexpected taste combination. Read More

A bit messy... I've only refrigerated it so i wonder if letting it set in the freezer would turn out... Very tasty!! Read More

I used SF strawberry jello and NF frozen yogurt. I let the jello cool a bit then folded soft frozen yogurt at the same time I added the strawberries in order to prevent icicles in the pie. This made quite a bit of filling too much for one 8 inch pie. I poured the excess into dixie cups let them set up a bit and stuck popsicle sticks in them. I thought it was okay for a low-sugar low-fat pie but the family was indifferent. I'd make this again for myself. I think if I were to make this again I would use frozen sliced strawberries which would cause the jello to firm up a bit then fold in the frozen yogurt. Read More
