"Made per the recipe and I wish I had read the reviews first. This does need some cornstarch. I will add it next time as I will definitely be making this again!"

"Made it with cornstarch in the filling and loved it!!!"

"I'm definitely going to make this again only with a little cornstarch in the filling to thicken it up a bit. It was pretty runny and made the crust a bit soggy but overall pretty good."

"The pie was very good, but mine was very tart. I used 3/4 cup sugar in the filling and added 2 teasp corn starch, based on other reviews. I used approximately 4 cups strawberries and a little more than 3/4 pound rhubarb. Maybe it was more tart because I used fresh rhubarb. For the topping, I used 1/2 cup oats, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 2 T melted light butter, plus a little water, and then dropped pieces on top of the filling. I used a deep dish pie plate and didn't have any dripping problems. The recipe cooking time was perfect (I did use a pie guard for the crust). I might increase the sugar to 1 cup next time, or just make sure I serve it with plenty of Cool Whip to cut the sourness. It also would be good as a crisp, with more topping and no pie crust."
