"This is a great idea, but it didn't set up for me either. The second time I made it I used my normal strawberry pie glaze recipe and instead of putting strawberry jello in it, I used raspberry jello and it was fantastic!"

"When the pie was cooling it looked liked it would set up really well, but once it was cut into the slices spread all of the plate. It still tasted very good, though."

"This is the best berry pie I've ever made. It's so easy. I usually make two of them. Just made one a hour ago. I use the store bought Pillsbury pie but you can use graham crackers pie crusts also. My daughter wants me to make it with gluten free graham crackers so that will be next. I actually made the berries once and did not use any crust. Ate them with fat free reddi whip. Yummy"

"Fabulous. I cut out individual pie shells from roll-out pastry from the store and put them in cupcake forms. I cut the fruit in smaller pieces so it would fit easier in the smaller spaces. It made 15. The pies were not at all runny. They set up beautifully. I put a few pieces of whole fruit on top of each. Delicious."

"I made this pie for my husband's birthday and he loved it. We called it 'Berries of the Forest" since it had all of the berries in it. Use fresh berries! It makes it much tastier. I didn't mind that it was a little runny. I just licked the plate!"

"I made one last weekend on Saturday and had to make it again the next day. It went so quickly. The second time I made it I cut the sugar to a 1/2 cup instead of 3/4. The berries are so sweet this time of year, it really wasn't needed. Gave this to two other friends who also made it. Raved about it. Would make it again"

"As an addendum, you can see from the picture that the pie is runny. That juice came from some place. My changes reduced the amount of corn starch as well as sugar, thus reducing the calories and carbs and made the pie more diabetic friendly. 'Healthier'."

"This pie is delicious made as directed and very easy to switch up the berry mixture to accommodate different palates. I do however, take issue with those who are rating it lower when they insist on using frozen fruit and obviously do not adjust the thickening agent accordingly! Please, if you're going to change a recipe do not rate it based on your changes!"

"After reading about the pie being runny, I made some changes. I kept the crust and berries but changed the ingredients for the sauce. In a large saucepan, combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 1 1/2 cups water until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.

Remove from the heat; stir in 1 package (.3 ounce) sugar-free strawberry gelatin and 3 tablespoons sugar until dissolved. Stir in berries. Pour into the crust.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. I also cut the strawberries into smaller pieces. Made my own crust and used canned whipped topping to avoid hydrogenated oils/trans fats. The pie was a big hit! The reason for only 3 stars was because of all the necessary changes."
