Strawn's is a Restrauant that serves home cooked meals ( like Momma use to make) and their pies "R" to die for. The recipe was in the local newspaper. It's easy to make and as a friend from church said "It's heavenly".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With electric mixer beat yolks and sugar until a light lemon color.
  2. Add cornstarch, salt and vanilla.
  3. Add milk a little at the time until blended.
  4. Cook over low heat stirring constantly until thick, almost stiff.
  5. If there are lumps beat with mixer until smooth.
  6. Add 1/4 stick of butter and let cool.
  7. Toss peach wedges with powdered sugar.
  8. Spread half of the custard in the bottom of each pie shell.
  9. Top with peaches and ice with whipped, sweetned cream.
  10. NOTE: Bettina uses the custard all in one pie and uses 4 large peaches.

Excellent recipe and easy to follow directions! Strawn's piles on whipped topping (like six inches) and serves in ice cold! I used fresh Stratford, Oklahoma peaches and a Mrs. Smith frozen pie crust. Delicious - watch out you will be craving this pie.

This recipe has to be the easiest one I've made when trying to make a vanilla custard/pudding filling!! No problems with adding hot to cold or blending like the traditional recipes. I saved this recipe with the thought of using peaches but mine were not quite ripe. I substituted fresh blueberries and raspberries, placing them in first atop the crust, then adding the filling. Topped with sliced strawberries. My family is lactose intolerant so I used the Lactose free milk~worked perfectly!!!! Thank you so much for an awesome recipe, this a keeper for certain!!!
