MY REVIEW

If-it tastes as good as it looks-it will be amazing-however-I did put the gelatin and strawberries in the mix last 1 min??! Thought better to mix in and-soak in better.

This gets a 5 star rating from my family! It is even requested as a birthday dessert instead of a cake. Cool and refreshing, it works every time.

I made two strawberry pies for a family dinner and they were gone in no time! Perfection!!!

MY REVIEW

This is one of the easiest pies to make. I used a graham cracker crust, just because I thought it wouldn't get as soggy. I made it three times in the past week for different family members, they all asked when are you making that for us again? It tastes wonderful, and fresh berries make it great!

MY REVIEW

This recipe's a keeper for sure. Sometimes a variation that I add is to spread 3 oz. of softened cream cheese on the bottom of the baked pie shell before filling with the berries.
