Granny loves this pie, and so do I. We always had fresh strawberries in their garden, and I have probably eaten my weight in them over the years.

Granny used to make this sometimes, and I was amazed. She always told me it was simple enough that even I could do it.

And one day she wrote the recipe on the back of a birthday card envelope for me.

Shoney’s strawberry pie


1 cup of sugar

1 cup of water

3 tablespoons of corn starch

3 tablespoons strawberry Jell-O

Enough fresh, whole strawberries to fill baked 9-inch deep-dish pie crust.

9-inch graham cracker pie crust



Blend the sugar, cornstarch and water together and cook to almost pudding stage. 

Add strawberry Jell-O.

Place clean, whole strawberries into baked pie shell.

Pour cooked mixture over berries.

Chill two hours at least. Top with whipped cream topping, if desired.
