I have "assembled" strawberry pies in the past (prepared crust, store bought glaze), but this time I decided to make one from scratch for my friend's birthday party. The glaze did not set firmly...or even close to firmly...after 4 hours of chilling. It made for a rather unfortunate presentation although the flavor was good and I received several compliments on it. I will use this recipe again but I will add more cornstarch (or maybe plain gelatin?) next time so that it holds together a little better. Thanks for posting! I won't ever buy that stuff in jar again!

I used a pre-made cookie crust (Keebler chocolate) so the recipe was no bake. The filling didn't set up firmly, which made serving more challenging but made for a much more pleasant feeling in the mouth so the serving challenge can be forgiven. I'll be making this one again! Thanks for posting.

This recipe is FANTASTIC! It surely beats the ready made glazes. We have a restaurant called Shoney's in the South and they pride themselves on their strawberry pies. They are good! Our oldest son always wanted a Shoney's Pie for his teenage birthdays. This year our daughter and son-in-law came in for Thanksgiving and we were going to celebrate her birthday early. SHE asked for a strawberry pie as well.I got the strawberries and could not find glaze at the store so I came to my FAVORITE place to search for recipes. I selected yours, and I will NEVER use ready made glaze again! Thanks for sharing!
