"A chocolate-painted baked pie crust prevents this pie from getting soggy and adds a wonderful flavor complementing the strawberries! Serve with whipped cream. I am adding blueberries just around the inner edge of the pie crust after the filling has been added to create a nice red, white, and blue theme for our 4th of July celebration!" — jenni

Easy, Delicious and a perfect dessert for your summer BBQ! Enjoy!
I wasn't really that impressed with this. I followed the recipe exactly and it was just ok.
I have a standard strawberry pie I've been making for years, but I like trying new recipes, and this was was great. I followed the recipe to a T, and it came out perfect. If you refrigerate the pie for a few hours, the recommended amount of cornstarch is perfect. Next time I make this pie, I will pour the starwberry mixture in a vita mixer so the sauce would be smoother. The taste was divine, esp. the painted chocolate piecrust. This one is a keeper!
This is an incredibly well thought out recipe. I followed it to the tiniest detail, and it was beautiful and delicious! The chocolate in the crust is a very clever touch to keep it firm, and the filling combines for ideal texture and flavor. The whole berries at the base in particular make for a perfect element of beautiful fresh berry flavor in the sweet and tart filling.
I baked this pie yesterday, following the directions exactly, and it got rave reviews from everyone in my family. None of them are normally "dessert people" but everyone went back for a second helping of this pie! The chocolate painted pie crust was brilliant! I used white chocolate and it added such a yummy flavor to the pie and a crunchiness to the crust. The level of sweetness was perfect, as was the consistancy of the filling. Thanks so much for sharing this amazing recipe...it has become an instant summertime favorite in my family!
the only thing I realy did different was quarter the strawberries rather than leave them whole....this pie is incredible!!
I have never liked traditional strawberry pie, I always found it way too sweet and way too fattening. I was incredibly worried about this one, especially when my strawberry goo thickened up pretty much immediately and I knew it wasn't going to survive 12-14 minutes on the burner. I took it off after 5 minutes and tasted it; my test taste must've had a pocket of lemon juice, it was terribly sour. However, this recipe turned out AMAZING! The lemon juice must've calmed down after cooling in the fridge (mine set in less than 2 hours). I never keep blueberries around because I tend to forget I have them and they go bad fairly quickly, so I used sliced kiwi instead. I can picture myself sitting on the beach drinking my frozen daiquiri and eating a slice of this beauty. The only thing I would do differently next time is use less chocolate (I used my own Wilton chocolate wafers and overdid it a bit).
I made this for a neighborhood bbq and I was asked for the recipe by everyone that had it. It was the chocolate on the crust that people mentioned the most. It just adds something different. It is one of those desserts that makes people think you're a master baker even though it is really easy to make!
