I added 2 Tbsp strawberry syrup instead of flavored gelatin. It was very thick before adding gelatin and had to add a little more 7up. Used 1 packet (1 oz.) Knox unflavored gelatin but will omit it next time. Cornstarch makes it thick enough. Very good Read More

Since my husband and Mom are both diabetic I used Sprite Zero and Splenda. I also used just a bit of Redi-Whip as I served it rather than the cool whip. It was wonderful...especially for a sugar free desert. Read More

I also used Splenda and diet soda. The gelatin mixture was too thick and just sat on top of the pie. It did not get down in between the strawberries. Also I couldn't really taste any sparkling soda. However Aa much as I like strawberries it was still good. I will just adjust the cornstarch next time. Read More

I used one tablespoon of cornstarch. Think the instructions should read to cook over medium heat "until boiling. Boil one minute or until mixture turns from white to opaque." Then when you add your gelatin the mixture will look like a ruby. Also the mixture needs to cool before you add it to the pie shell. (I used a prepared graham cracker crust.) The mixture cooled in the fridge while I leisurely prepared my strawberries. Delicious. Read More
