    I really wanted to like this recipe. I choose this one to try because it didn’t have jello in it. I followed the directions exactly and it didn’t set at all. When I cut a piece the entire strawberry mixture was like I had just poured it in the crust. It’s a mess. I don’t know what I did wrong. The flavor was very good though.

    Absolutely delicious. Tastes like fresh strawberries. I did cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup and felt it was just the right amount of sweet for us.

    We have declared this the best strawberry pie ever. It tasted so fresh - none of the gelatin in it made it taste REAL rather than fake and gelled up. We loved this and will make it again for sure.

    Easy to make and tastes delicious. But my middle layer never set, so it ended up being a runny mess. Followed the directions exactly, so don't know what went wrong.

    I made this for my husband with fresh picked strawberries. He absolutely loved it! This recipe doesn't have that bitter strawberry Jello in it so the showcase flavor is REAL strawberry! I'm such a fan of this recipe and I will make it again!

    This pie is so easy and absolutely delicious! Tastes like strawberry shortcake in a pie. Don't forget the homemade whipped cream and to make it extra special, drizzle it with a little melted dark chocolate!
