"This was a recipe from a friend of my mom's and the only strawberry pie I've ever made. There is nothing better than freshly picked strawberries in the summer on this pie."

1 (9 inch)
unbaked deep dish pie crust
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
strawberry-flavored Jell-O® mix
fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
I didn't have strawberry gelatin so used rasberry instead. It was still wonderful. I will definety make it again.
I haven't tasted it yet, but all the parts individually taste fantastic! I am concerned though, as there is *so much* of the cream cheese mixture that the pie crust without any berries is already full! I will barely get one thin layer of berry slices on top, and then I am worried that the glaze mixture will run off the edges! This must be for a very deep pie crust, not a pre-made frozen Tenderflake.
This pie is FABULOUS! I made my own crust. You only need 2 cups of the sliced berries for it to be perfect! Thank You for sharing!
I have been making this for YEARS and it is always wonderful. You can substitute the strawberries for peaches or raspberries or blackberries or blueberries or a mixture of any of these and change to the appropriate gelatin depending on what is in season. You can even use canned fruit (think mandarin oranges or pineapple). If you need it sugar free for a diabetic, splenda works very well, as does sugar free gelatin, but be careful measuring it because there is less of it (takes about half a package for one pie). I have even made it once with chopped cranberries sweetened with splenda in place of the berries and a bit of grated orange peel in the cheesecake part for a Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert... Splenda can make it sugar free quite well! It's very versatile and no one ever believes it is so easy to make. Use a graham cracker crust if you MUST, but a real deep dish pie crust is best! YUMMY!!!
This is really good, easy, and I will definitely make it again. It was a little too sweet for my taste and I will be cutting back on the sugar used in the topping next time.
Made tonight and served to our neighbors. I made exactly as stated, no revisions. Everyone loved it, my neighbors wife wanted the recipe. Said it tasted like a cheesecake that you baked for hours. I said no just 30 minutes! Very easy. Will definitely make again!
This was good... not great. It just made us want cheesecake. The filling amount didn't seem off as other reviewers suggested. A deep dish pie pan is required. I was not a fan of the strawberry glaze. I was just disappointed by the outcome. It seemed like it would be so good, but fell flat.
I made this recipe for our family's Canada Day BBQ. I used a pre-made Pillsbury fresh pie crust in a 9 inch deep dish glass pyrex pie plate. I whipped the cream cheese with only 1/4 cup of sugar, and added 1/2 tsp of vanilla to the batter. I cut my strawberries in quarters and mixed in the glaze then spread the strawberry mixture over the chilled baked pie. It was very good and we all really enjoyed it. Will make again.
