The glaze is great but I lined my pie crust with 8 oz softened cream cheese before I added the strawberries to keep the crust from getting soggy and add richness. Read More

I wasn't crazy about this recipe. I didn't make a pie out of it cause I was just experimenting with it I just made the sauce and put the strawberries into it and put it in the frige. It was really too thick once refrigerated. It may have been ok if left at room temperature but I don't know cause it was late and I put in the frige while it was still a little bit warm.. And to me it was too sweet. But that may depend on the ripeness of your berries. Mine were really ripe. Maybe if I add a little less cornstarch and less sugar it would be ok.. another suggestion is to run a few berries in a blender and add to the sauce to make it taste less like artificial strawberry flavor from the jello and more like real strawberry flavor. Overall this recipe was ok at best... it wasn't horrible but it wasn't wonderful either.. Read More

I made just a few changes(used frozen strawberries rather than fresh & used 4 Tbs of gelatin mix since I was out of cornstarch) and everyone in the family loved it including my sister-in-law who does not "do pies". I might make it again next week too. Read More

OMG!!!! Awesome! Doubled the recipe and made 2 pies. I used Keebler graham cracker crust (the crust with 2 extra servings). Used fresh strawberries from my garden. Just served to several coworkers who devoured the pies in 10 minutes. Will make again. Update: made again this week - important to let the filling cool completely. I didn't let it cool long enough (only an hour an 15 min) because I was tired and wanted to go to bed. So the next morning when I cut the pie at work it was a bit runny. So make sure you cool completely. Will take about 2 to 3 hours to cool to room temperature. Read More

This is my first review but I had to let you know how great this is. The family thoroughly enjoyed it. It was the first time I had made a strawberry pie but it won't be the last. Thanks Read More

I've made this a couple of times and we love it. It's one of my husband's favorites and he doesn't usually dig desserts! I don't get the bad reviews. I've made no changes other than topping individual slices with lite Cool Whip and my crust has never gotten soggy. Try as written it's great! Read More

This was sooo good. For the crust I used the Shortbread Crust recipe from this site. I also sliced the strawberries instead of leaving them whole. Everyone loved it! My husband already wants me to make it again. Definitely a keeper! Read More
