The strawberries are ripe and this was the perfect recipe to use some of them! The cream cheese layer in the crust really added a nice flavor. Then, pouring the filling over the fresh berries gives you a mix between a cooked filling and a fresh filling. This is an excellent recipe! I will make this one often, I have a lot of strawberry lovers! Thank you Bev!!

I had two buckets of fresh strawberries and this recipe sounded so good. I made two pies, one for my family and one for the neighbors. It was fast, easy and very delicious. I will definitely keep this recipe and make again!! I did change one thing, I used a graham cracker crust. I loved the cream cheese bottom, really added to the great taste of strawberries.

This is an excellent strawberry pie recipe. Very easy to make too. I added some powdered sugar to the cream cheese. The strawberry topping was perfectly berry sweet. This looked dazzling and you should have seen everyone gobble it down. Thanks Bev :)

Oh Bev this is a keeper! I was lazy and used a store bought gram cracker crust. VERY GOOD!

Wow! Just made this today with fresh picked strawberries. I also added just a bit of icing sugar to the cream cheese mixture. My cooked mixture set perfectly- perhaps anyone having a problem wasn't let it boil long enough because I followed the recipe exactly and it set like a charm. Next time I may try a graham cracker crust. This is far superior to anything made with Jello( not a product I use). It got the thumbs up from the sweet tooth in my family.

I'm sorry, I followed the recipe exactly and I could not get this pie to turn out. Perhaps I used too many fresh strawberries in the pie crust because when I added the cooked strawberry mixture, it just oozed over the top and spilled out. It never did set up properly in the refrigerator. My dad really liked this pie, but as for myself and the other taste testers, we preferred a different strawberry recipe; so as a result, I probably won't be making this again.

I made this for a family gathering, and it got rave reviews. Although I made the glaze precisely according to the recipe, it was thinner than I would have liked it to be. I will probably add a bit more cornstarch next time. Since the pie went over so well, there will be a next time - it's definitely a recipe worth the effort of adjusting.

Delicious pie! I loved that it called for some mashed berries in the sauce and NOT strawberry gelatin like some recipes. It seemed far more honest and flavorful. I did not use the food coloring - it didn't need it. I'm glad I made a regular pastry crust - I think a graham cracker crust might have been too sweet. The lemon zest in the unsweetened cream cheese was GENIUS!! What a zing of contrasting flavor without more sweetness. Love this. Thanks!
