MY REVIEW

"I've made this pie many times, as written, and it is wonderful! A couple of my tweaks: use 7-Up or some other lemon-lime soda in place of the water, add 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tbsp. after removing from the heat, stir till butter is melted. It adds a note of richness and silkiness to the pie! Oh, and top with freshly whipped cream!"

"Yes. I tried the recipe my husband and I loved it. I have been searching for a good strawberry pie recipe that didn't taste like jello with strawberries. The only change I made was to add 3 tbs. of Karo clear syrup to the cornstarch and sugar before boiling. This does give the pie a smoother texture."

"I lost the fresh strawberry pie recipe I received from mother-in-law and searched TOH hoping I could find a recipe close to it. This is the exact recipe. So good!"

"I made this recipe, but substituted Margarita Jello, because that is what I had on hand. It was delicious. This will be my "go-to" fresh strawberry pie recipe from now on. There are only 2 people in our household, so we can't eat an entire pie. I cut into this pie and then refrigerated the rest. With this filling, the bottom did not get soggy, a problem I've had with other strawberry pie recipes."
