This is the same filling I've used for about a year for making strawberry pie (the sugar, cornstarch, water, and jello). However, the amounts listed are what I use to make ONE pie! I have no idea how this amount of filling would cover enough strawberries for 2 pies. Also, my recipe calls for cold water (when mixing it with the jello, cornstarch, and sugar), bringing it all to a boil and boiling it for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. I've never had one turn out soupy or rubbery.

this pie is amazing! i have a great idea for DIABETICS. my grandpa is diabetic so i used sugar free jello mix and cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup, it turned out wonderful. my mom (who watches her weight) took a piece because it was so low in calories. even my picky brother gobbled it down. it goes great with a shortbread pie crust. thank you so much janice!

Definitely only enough for one pie! I thought this was absolutely delicious... with a few adjustments :) I followed the advice of others and reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and sliced my strawberries (they were from the farmer's market, so they were different sizes). I also added a lemony cream cheese layer on the bottom which was a fantastic counterpoint to the sweetness. One more thing- homemade crust and real whipped cream are an absolute MUST with this recipe. Store bought crust and Cool Whip just won't cut it... Everyone was absolutely raving and wanted the recipe immediately!
