Great Pie!! I made this pie yesterday for a pie contest at our eagles club. And it took BEST PIE OVER ALL! The only thing differnt I did was while the strawberries were still warm I added 1/2 a packet of strawberry jello. Because the strawberries was a little to runny for me. But changed nothing els.

followed recipe as written & always double check my ingredients & directions so was greatly disappointed when the strawberry sauce turned into a soupy mess. I can't believe my container of strawberries was that overly juicy. could of used twice the starch. I ended up using a slotted spoon to strain of the runny liquid. The flavor of the pie was very good but the appearance was sloppy. Not good as a leftover. Read More

This was a pretty good pie. When you cook the strawberry mixture you should bring it to a boil for one minute as with any cornstarch mixture. I found that this was better after it was refrigerated for a while. I used sliced almonds instead of slivered. It set up quite nicely and my kids loved it! Read More

I've made this pie twice now. The first one was with a crushed graham cracker crust and the most recent was with a crushed vanilla wafer crust. I used fresh whipped cream on both and didn't add the almonds to the top. Both are delicious refreshing treats! I preferred the graham cracker crust to the vanilla wafer one. Read More

This pie was awesome and fairly easy to make. My strawberries did get a little soupie I added more cornstarch and ended up only using about 3/4 of the strawberries on the pie any more and it would have run over and been a sloppy mess. I also doubled the cream cheese mixture on the bottom b/c I think that's part of what makes this pie so good! Read More
