I love this pie! I definitely needed more than 42 vanilla wafers to get 1 1/2 cups of crumbs (I didn't count out the extras, but I'm guessing it was about 60 total, less than one whole box either way). I wasn't paying enough attention, so I added the whole amount of vanilla to the crust, then realized when I was making the glaze that I was only supposed to add 1/2 tsp. to the crust. Oh well, I just added 1/2 tsp to the glaze part because I was afraid that 1 1/2 tsp in both parts would be too much (maybe not, but I didn't want to take the chance and ruin the pie). Everything tasted just fine in the end, though. I had to cut my strawberries in half for the last step, because even my smallest berries were pretty big (I used the really enormous ones for the glaze part). I got a good photo of the uncut pie (I'll post that once I have time to figure out the camera size settings), but I found that the cut pieces kind of fell apart and plated out more like a crisp than a cohesive slice of pie, so I didn't snap the sliced pie. No matter, though -- it tasted wonderful no matter what shape it was in on the plate! Beautiful color, too -- very visually appealing. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring '10
