this pie was great and so easy. i read the reviews and used a couple of hints from them. i replaced the water with ginger ale, and "painted" my pie crust with a melted semi-sweet chocolate chips. chocolate covered strawberries are wonderful so I figured how could this go wrong? It was great! 48 hours after the pie was made, the crust is still crisp not soggy! The flavor with the chocolate and ginger ale is spectacular! I used 2 quarts of strawberries, picked out the nicer ones for the pie, used the more bruised and much larger ones for the sauce. Also, I had no trouble with the pie setting up well. Be sure and cook it the full 12 - 14 minutes and I chilled for 24 hours. It set up wonderfully and cut great.
I didn't want to add food color or add the suggestion of jello for color, as I wanted to keep this as "whole food" as I could, with no additional additives.
I Will definately make this again, probably for our 4th of July party..... for added color I might place some blueberries around the edge of the crust after it is filled for a Red, White & Blue theme! Thanks for the suggestions, it was perfect!
