I saw this recipe while at work looking for something to take to the cook out for tomorrow 4th of July party. I got home with my ingredients in hand and looked at the recipe again. I questioned the 3 oz of cream cheese so I came in for a double look and read the reviews. I'm going to trust Lou's recipe below and pray for the best.

I followed this recipe using The Lady& Sons Savannah Country Cookbook by Paula Deen, page 140. I wanted strawberry pie for our dinner club and trusted the well known resource so went ahead and made two pies following the recipe, all the while questioning the list of ingredients. The next morning I tested the pies having refrigerated them for 12 hours+. I just felt like something wasn't right. I was right, the bottom layer was creamed sugar, butter with eggs just like it was in the mixing bowl. The cream cheese had been omitted from the recipe. I had worked through the raw egg hangup. I discovered the missing cream cheese when I pulled up the Paula Deen web site and fiound the recipe there, with cream cheese.Didn't expect an error in Paula's book, are there others??? I was very disappointed and had to make a quick trip to the locl bake shop. Pat

I made this pie last night and like previous people said I couldn't get the filling to set right. I thought it was my fridge at first not working right. I was going to serve it like a pudding but it tasted weird. If I was to make this again I wouldn't use the eggs. More cream cheese. I still love Paula deen but this one is not going in my cookbook.

The base WOULD NOT set up. Done it a second time thinking I did something wrong. Same results. Upon reading the comments (after trying recipe 2 times) tried the "revised" version that Courtney Lou suggested. Base turned out great! Topping recipe not as thought. Did maybe they mean whipping cream (liquid) and not whipped cream? Used 1 cup of whipped cream and 1/4c sugar as directed and it made enough to cover a cupcake. So just kept adding whipped cream to bowl and mixing it until there was enough to cover the pie and called it good enough. Looks good though.

I just had to completly redo this recipe. I put 8 ounces of cream cheese, 1 stick of butter, 1 1/2 cup of powder sugar, 1 cup of cool whip, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and two teaspoons of sugar. let that chill in the prepared pan for a hour or until firm. Then I put a layer of sliced strawberries ontop of that, then followed the topping recipe^^^ No need to stress about the egg part just leave that out. I'd try this one if I was you its so good.

I just made this pie last night, let it set in fridge over night, put strawberries and whipped topping on today, let set another 2 hours, tried cutting it, finally scooped it like pudding, good taste, but glad I tried it before serving it to my Bunko group in Feb.

I never have seen whether or not the filling should be cooked...??

The pie is delicous but I could not get the eggs, powdered sugar, cream cheese and butter mixture to set up. I even put it in the freezer and it would not set up at all. When I added the layer of whipping cream it grew and grew like the "blob" and had to serve it in a bowl like a thin banana pudding. What is wrong.

Maybe this should have more cream cheese and less butter. It taste more like butter.

My husband and I loved the flavor of this pie but the base would not thicken, (I even tried a few minutes in the freezer). Has anyone else had this problem?
