Do any of you remember what Walgreen's strawberry pie tasted like? This is as close to it as I have ever eaten, enjoy!

I would never have thought of putting Kool-Aid in a pie, but this sounds awesome. Thanks so much for the recipe. :-)

This may sound odd but I have to know. Can you use the clear strawberry kool aid. My one daughter is allergic to red dye, but loves strawberries. Thanks

It was red when I was growing up. Since she is allergic I would think she could use the plain gelatin. Try mixing in some kind of red juice.
