My grandmother made this pie every year for Thanksgiving. She would make it with a homemade pie crust, but I love it with a graham cracker crust. Either way is great! It's good with any type of pie crust. It's perfect for a very sweet and light dessert. It just melts in your mouth! Enjoy! It does not freeze well.

This was O.K. but nothing sets it apart from other strawberry Jello pies that I've had. Set your timer for 10 minutes for the gelatin mixture to thicken because I checked it at 15 minutes, and it solidified...had to throw away and start over. On the positive side, this is easy to put together. I would have preferred a regular pie crust, but that's just a personal preference. Sorry, this tastes pretty good but just pretty ordinary.

Being a diabetic I made a couple of changes to this recipe substituting sugar with Splenda, regular jello to sugar-free and used sugar-free Cool Whip. This is a refreshing delightful pie. My family loved it. Thank you for sharing it! Read More

Made exactly as the recipe stated. It was very good. I've put this recipe in the family cookbook. I'll be making it again. I am going to try adding cream cheese next time. My daughter thinks it might be a good addition. We'll see. Read More

I made this for a friend who just had a baby girl (fun pink dessert!) and made one for our family. It was light and delicious. I made it a little healthier with low-fat cool whip and truvia instead of the sugar. I would have used sugar-free Jello but the store was out. I may try it with fresh peaches and peach Jello next time. Read More

Absolutely delicious. The only issue I had was getting the jello to set because the recipe didn't call for ice. I put it in the freezer until it was cold enough to "set" in the fridge. I added walnuts as well. Will definitely make this again! Read More

I am so pleased with this pie! I read the review where it came out like mousse...I did not have that problem. I loved the fact that there were so many berries in the pie! I have had the leftovers in the fridge for three days and there is no pulling away from the crust or weeping. The only thing I changed was I used watermelon flavored gelatin (store was sold out of strawberry...go figure!). I will definitely make this again...what a great summer pie! Read More
