Loved this pie made for a graduation celebration and has become my go to strawberry pie. I made one change though - I used melted white chocolate to cover the baked crust before adding the strawberries and gelatin. The flavor was nice and I never worry about the crust getting mushy anymore. Fun to garnish with a whole strawberry dipped in white chocolate! Yummmm.

Delicious recipe. I did the same thing as reviewer nanrev EXCEPT I left the strawberries whole. The slight tartness of the whole berries paired with the sweetness of the gelatin mixture was really good.

Great, easy recipe. I added the sliced strawberries to the jello mixture, then filled the pie crust. All strawberries were covered with glaze as opposed to glaze sitting on top.

Delicious, I made it this past week for my son's birthday. I made a whole wheat crust and he loved it!

This was delicious. I didn't have enough strawberries so I threw in raspberries and blackberries that I had too. I have only had this pie with that packet of glaze you buy but this was so easy and tasted great.

There was a restaurant in my home town that made the best strawberry pie I have ever eaten. This one was very close. I made it exactly as written.
