    Did you know that you can use 1 cup of heavy cream instead of sweetened condense milk

    If you use a cup of heavy cream where will the pie get its sweetness from? This sounds great I am going to make it soon.

    In the strawberry glaze directions -- you left out adding the box of strawberry jello. I'm going to try it this week.
