"Very simple and tasty recipe. My daughter loved it. I made it with sugar free jello and topped with cool whip."
"Didn't love it... Will continue the search for the "perfect strawberry pie""
"To amybooth. Possibly the cornstarch wasn't completely cooked. That would give you the cloudiness.Better luck next time. I off to make this pie again but with raspberries this ,time."
"I followed the recipe exactly & the gelatin mixture on top of the berries looks hazy. I am guessing red food coloring would have made this glaze look more appealing on top of the berries."
