Reviews for Easy Fresh Strawberry Pie
"There was a restaurant in my home town that made the best strawberry pie I have ever eaten. This one was very close. I made it exactly as written."
"My friend gave me this recipe years ago. Every time I made it people love it. Always my go to recipe to take to pot lucks."
"Use only 1/4 cup sugar! Trust me, the jello packet provides plenty of sweetness so the 3/4 cup is not necessary. It came out perfect this way."
"I made this as directed. Next time, here's what I would do differently because the topping is only on the top! Make more topping, when cooled, stir in the strawberries to the topping. THEN pour the strawberry mixture into the baked crust. That way the strawberries have more moisture & adds to the taste."
"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."
"This is an excellent recipe. My family loves it and I make it all the time."
"Amazing!! Made two in a week!"

"I made this pie for my family on Valentine's Day. Easy recipe and most yummy Strawberry Pie we ever had. Thank you so much for this recipe!!! Terri Ann"
"Great, easy recipe. I have always struggled with strawberry pies being too soupy, but it was not the case with this recipe. Each slice of pie held its shape great.If you like a very sweet pie you may need to add more sugar than the recipe calls for, unless you are using fresh-picked strawberries. I thought it tasted great as the recipe was, though.We garnished this with fresh homemade whipped cream and it was delicious."
"The best, and oh, so easy! It's so nice to make a fruit pie from fresh fruit, and make the glaze, rather than purchase it. This is a keeper. My husband gives it 5 stars also! And it makes me look good! :)"
"This was so quick and easy. I put in 5 cups of strawberries because 4 cups was too fewfor a pie. We loved it. It cut perfectly and did not fall apart! Excellent!"
"Delicious pie! it reminds my husband of the strawberry pie he used to have at Jerrys in Terre Haute Indiana. I followed the recipe exactly. Will definitely make it again!"

"I love this pie ... I've made it several times ... I like the fact that you make your own glaze. It taste great ... my kids love it too"
"This was great. I am not a big dessert maker, and this was so easy and delicious."
"Easy recipe. I used less sugar (1/2 cup) and still good. Could probably use even less."
"Great recipe. I make whenever I have fresh strawberries. Very easy. Tastes great!"
