    BeachGirl's Note:

    When strawberries are at their peak, this is a beautiful, light ending to any dinner. Because of it's color, it's especially appropriate for Valentine's Day. Cooking time includes 2-3 hours chilling time. For a fat-free dessert, omit the crust. Make the layers in individual parfait glasses, and garnish as for the pie.

      This was a very smooth and creamy dessert. Reading the recipe, I had thought that this would be "cheesecake-like". The texture wasn't as dense as I had thought it would be. I followed the recipe except for using sugar free Jello instead of regular gelatin (I used regular instant pudding though). I think that this probably affected how the filling "set" in the pie shell. The filling didn't really set very well for me. The pie was very tasty nonetheless. I think that I will make this again and put it into parfait glasses instead of a pie shell. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
