Review: McDonald's - Baked Strawberry Pie

McDonald's has a Baked Strawberry Pie available this summer for a limited-time and with limited availability. Fortunately, "limited availability" included one of my local McDonald's which offered the pies for 69 cents each or two for $1.

Each pie is dusted with cinnamon and sugar similar to the Apple version. The filling has a very red, strawberry jam color. The crust is still the same, nice flaky pie crust found in all McDonald's baked pies.
The filling is a cross between a jam and a compote but isn't as sweet. It hints at strawberry but I wish it had a little more. I was hoping for a vibrant taste closer to a Marie Callendar's Strawberry Pie where they just throw a bunch of glazed strawberries into a pie crust. But I guess this and that are two different things since these strawberries are actually cooked.
Still, I like McDonald's Strawberry Pie. There aren't many convenient options for cheap strawberry pie or strawberry pies in general so I'll take my fix where I can.
