This pie was just o.k. The recipe made way too much crust, and I even used a larger tart pan. The crust was good, but entirely too thick. Also, the filling was very bland. The pie made a beautiful presentation, and with a few changes could probably be good.

The crust was a bit thick - will adjust next time - didn't hear any complaints. Can't wait to make with the fresh strawberries we will be picking, here in Virginia, next month. This is a beautiful presentation dessert - and it is delicious !!

I usually love SL recipes but this one was not good. The crust was too thick and the the custard filling was very bland.

My in-laws came for Easter lunch and raved about this pie! It was beautiful and delicious. I agree that the recipe made way too much crust. I would only make half the recipe next time. I also had trouble finding "chocolate wafer cookies" in my local grocery stores (I tried 4!) so I ended up using those 100-calorie Oreo snacks. They worked great! I will definitely make this again.

We had this for Easter and it was so fresh and cool, creamy and rich, so yummy!

Upon seeing this picture I knew I had to make this scrumptious looking pie! Living in Japan I'm often reminded by my Japanese friends that American Desserts are too sweet. So I tweaked this a bit and replaced the half and half with whole cream, yes WHOLE CREAM..smile..and cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup. I nixed the sugar in the crust as well, the oreo cookies were sweet enough. I also left off the jelly glazed topping. It was a HUGE success with all plates emptied and not a leftover morsel to be found. I would definitely make this again. Not too sweet nor was it bland as stated by some of the other reviews. Definitely 5 stars~ Thanks Southern Living!

This pie is beautiful, but the middle is awful! The custard like texture does not pair well. The crust and strawberries were great!

That has got to be the WORST strawberry pie I've ever eaten in my whole life.
