My cooking-challenged hubby made this cuz he lost a bet to another coach in Little League! I wasn't allowed to help (part of the rules of the bet), so I'm not sure he followed the directions correctly, cuz it didn't gel very well. I'm not gonna blame the recipe, cuz it tasted delicious!! Well, the little bits that I could sneak off the cover, cuz we had to give it away! We used a prepared graham cracker crust, cuz a homemade one woulda pushed DH over the edge!
This is a delicious pie! So easy to prepare and so easy to eat! I did not do a good job of presentation, but that's no fault of the recipe. It wasn't suggested, but I do believe (personal preference) I will slice the majority of my strawberries next time. Thank You peacefulnightdove!
