Reviews for Strawberry Glaze Pie
"Delicious glaze. I cut the sugar back to 2/3 cup but the rest is perfect. I mixed the berries and glaze and refrigerated them out of the crust. Right before serving I added the glazed berries to the crust and topped with fresh homemade whipped cream. OH MY WORD! So yummy! I'm going to try it with blueberries, peaches, cherries and any other fruit you can put into a crust!"
"Absolutely delicious! Just like I remember from when I was a kid. Prefer the flavor very much to pies with an artificially flavored strawberry gelatin base. Definitely eat it within 36 hours of making it! Wonderful recipe!"
"I tried this pie so that we could have variety. I usually make my strawberry pies with a gelatin base rather than a strawberry base. This pie is TOO HIGHLY CONCENTRATED with strawberries. My husband (who has never been allergic to strawberries before) had a severe allergic reaction after eating a slice of this pie and drinking the remaining juice on his plate. Please be aware!"
"this pie was wonderful, like it alot"
"taste really good with a graham cracker pie crust!!!"
"This was a great glaze recipe...strawberry jello helps it to set up better!"
"Wonderful, easy recipe without the gummy gelatin. Best strawberry pie I've ever made/tasted. Thanks!"
