Absolutely the best strawberry pie I have ever tasted! I made this one tonight and it was superb! We usually use cool whip or whipped cream on our strawberry pie, but with the cream cheese mixture on the bottom of the crust, it makes the pie extra special. Everyone must try this one, simple and delicious!! YUM!

I made this for tonights dinner and guess what? There is a piece missing and I am the only one here. Must have a ghost! Well, at least the ghost has good tastes. This IS the very best strawberry pie I have ever eaten.(oops!)

TRIPLE Yummm! I can't believe how easy, pretty and how FABULOUS tasting this is! I doubled the amount of cream cheese (just Because). However, be warned that this is very VERY sweet (and I'm a sweet freak). I wonder if you cut the sugar to 3/4 Cup or less for the glaze + perhaps substituted red food coloring for the jello, if the glaze would still "thicken"? I will try that next time. Meanwhile, this is going to become one of THE summertime desserts at our house!

I made this to bring to my sister-in-laws for Easter. Everyone loved it! This is the first time I was not offered any deserts to bring home! The only thing I did differently was I used a premade Graham-cracker crust because I was in such a rush and I brushed it with a little egg white to keep it together and give it a glaze. Very gooooood!

This was so easy and really good. I had to use frozen strawberries, and can't wait til I can get some fresh to make it again!!

I made 2 of these last night for our huge picnic down by the lake today with about 11 other friends. I used the graham cracker crusts. The flavor was really really awesome, but I had a problem with the glaze. After adding the jello, I let it sit awhile to cool. For a long while! Then I put it in the fridge for over 2 hours and it was still hot. (By this time it was 3:30 am.) I ended up putting the hot glaze over the strawberries and left them in the fridge for 9 hours and the tops were runny. I'm guessing it's because the glaze was too hot when I poured it on. I was just wondering about how long you have to wait to let it cool down. I hope this does not deter anyone from trying this. Although we left these at home, to firm up some, we tried them later and they were so wonderfully delicious!! I would recommend them to anyone...in fact, my brother wants me to make some for his wedding in 10 days! So, thank you Miss Annie, for this recipe! I'm sure I was just clutzy and did something wrong! These were the best strawberry pies I have ever eaten!! YUM!!

What a beautiful pie! I used an almond/shortbread type crust and left the strawberries whole for a nice presentation. This pie is a lot like the one they serve at Luby's cafeteria but with the added touch of cream cheese.

Terrific recipe! I made this for Easter dinner's dessert. This is an easy recipe with great results. The pie's appearance is super red and full of fresh strawberry appeal. The cream cheese in the bottom of the crust is a neat touch and adds a special something. Definitely a keeper!
