Made this for Mother's day and my whole family raved about it. I followed the recipe except I sliced the berries. Don't chop the berries or the pie will never set up. Awesome.... now I will give it a try with blueberries.

The crust by itself: BLEH. But together with the rest of the pie was good! I only had "Strawberry Dacquiri" flavored Jell-O, and I think that gave it a slightly off flavor. I look forward to trying it with regular strawberry next time. Also note, this doesn't save well. After a day or two in the fridge, there was some sort of liquid that formed at the bottom of the pie, making the crust a bit soggy. This was a decent, easy recipe, but I'd probably try the various other ones out there before trying this one again.

I like to make strawberry pie in the spring using fresh berries from our patch. This is one of my husband's favorites. Sometimes I use a baked prepared pie crust. Don't use berries that are very juicy or the pie may not set as well.

Delicious. My husband ate the pie within 2 days. He said it was the best Pie I had ever cooked. My Strawberry Pie normally has too much Jello and taste like you're eating Jello with Strawberries. Maybe. the Karo Syrup made the pie more creamy . I don't know but I will be keeping the recipe.

Delicious.....added about 1 cup pureed, strained strawberries with one more tablespoon of flavored gelatin to the filling. It was a big hit!
