  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 6 tablespoons strawberry Jello
  • 1 pound strawberries cleaned, steam removed, and left whole
  • 1 9-inch deep-dish pie crust baked


  • Blend sugar, cornstarch, and water together in a medium-sized pot over medium heat.

  • Add Strawberry Jello to the glaze and stir to combine.
  • Place drained whole fresh strawberries into a baked deep-dish 9-inch pie shell. 
  • Pour cooked mixture over berries. Chill 2 hours at least. 
  • Top with Cool Whip if desired.



  • Make the pie more like Shoney’s by piling the strawberries up very tall into the pie shell
  • If you want you could use a graham cracker crust
