Reviews forContest-Winning Fresh Strawberry Pie
"The crust by itself: BLEH. But together with the rest of the pie was good! I only had "Strawberry Dacquiri" flavored Jell-O, and I think that gave it a slightly off flavor. I look forward to trying it with regular strawberry next time. Also note, this doesn't save well. After a day or two in the fridge, there was some sort of liquid that formed at the bottom of the pie, making the crust a bit soggy. This was a decent, easy recipe, but I'd probably try the various other ones out there before trying this one again."
"Delicious.....added about 1 cup pureed, strained strawberries with one more tablespoon of flavored gelatin to the filling. It was a big hit!"
