pie crust, baked
strawberry flavored Jell-O® mix
strawberries, cleaned and stemmed
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.
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..
I love to bake pies and this one is definately a keeper, the only thing I did diferently, and I could probably have done without, is I added one more tbls of jello. This is a great light pie!! Thanks for the recipe!!
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.
We thought this was absolutely delicious!! I even made more pies for friends and they raved about them. This is definately a keeper!!!!
This recipe tastes just great... I also put creamcheese on the pie crust which add some richness to the pie.. BIG APPLAUSE FROM THE FAMILY!!!
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
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.
