My family enjoys Shoney's Strawberry pies, but they are not inexpensive. I tried this recipe and they went NUTS over it! I made 2 more the next day and 2 more the day after that! They can't get enough. I even substituted splenda and sugar-free jello just to see how it would work for diabetics....it was fabulous....my family didn't even notice! Definitely a winner at my house!

We have always called this recipe the "Big Boy" Strawberry Pie, like they serve in the Big Boy Restaurants! I have been making this pie for years! Always get compliments on the taste and it looks so pretty. Make sure you let your jello/cornstarch mixture cool before you add to pie. You don't want too "cook" your strawberries. I always leave my berries whole unless they are way huge, then I may cut in half. Another hint (I learned from my mother in law) is spread some softned cream cheese on bottom of pie crust before adding berries and gel. It will stop the berries/jello from bleeding thru and soaking the pie crust. I may use 4 oz cream cheese softned and add 2 T or even 1/4 c powdered sugar. Mix together and spread on crust before adding pie filling. Works well with any uncooked fruit pie. Who wouldn't like a little sweetened cream cheese with their strawberries. :)

This was just that EASY!!! The pie has enough sugar in it to compensate for berries that might not be too sweet. The longest part of this pie is waiting for the mixture to cool down. I didnt change a thing and that is quite rare for me. Some people may want to use a graham cracker crumb crust but for me..... I have to go with the standard pie crust. I always make them home made. Thanks I really enjoyed this one.
