"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."
"This is an excellent recipe. My family loves it and I make it all the time."
