  1. I'm rating 4 stars because doubling the strawberries will make it 5 stars. I also used frozen and chopped strawberries in place of the ice cubes. I brought this to a ribs/corn cobb dinner I was invited too and it was a hit! Even among my husband who said he wasn't really fond of this - Read more ...
  2. This pie tasted wonderful and was a hit at my house. This is a keeper for the recipe box. Instead of making it with sliced strawberries I cut the berries into cubes and mixed them in with the filling. The effect was a bit of fresh strawberry in every bite.
  3. This was so good! I took someone else's advice froze a bunch of chopped strawberries and used them instead of ice because I wanted the strawberry flavor to pop. My fantastic-cook-of-a-neighbor thought it was awesome. It's rare that I have a recipe good enough to share but she wanted this one! I do wish I - Read more ...
  4. To cut calories use sliced strawberries to form the crust. Try other flavors of Jello fpor a variation- Strawberry Kiwi with Kiwi on top
  5. I wasn't sure I was going to like this when I mixed the jello and cool whip it may have been my fault for not letting the jello cool and thicken enough because it looked a little funky. BUT much to my suprise and the delight of DH and my kids it was FANTASTIC. Light - Read more ...

Once it sets up it needs something on top to make it look "finished". Otherwise a five star recipe! One more hint... make your own graham cracker crust. It just - Read more ...
  7. I made this using a chocolate graham cracker crust and it was terrific! This was even after being interrupted several times once for hours. The jello set up before the Cool Whip thawed so I had to microwave the jello back to a liquid state. Then the time waiting for the mixture to mound was - Read more ...
  8. Maybe I did something wrong but when I made it the pie never really set. Also a little too much strawberry flavor for me I might try it again using pudding instead of gelatin.
  9. I followed the basic recipe but substitued one cup of chopped frozen strawberries for the ice cubes. I also used fresh whipped cream and added a generous squeeze from a lemon as well as an additional cup of strawberries. Exactly what we were looking for!
  10. This is THE best strawberry pie I've ever had. My family has been making this pie for I don't know how many years but we always called it Light and Fruity Pie. Mmmmmmm!!!! Absolute heaven!:)
