There is a restaurant in Shreveport, LA that is famous for it's Strawberry Pie. I got this recipe back in the 70's In fact, Strawn's is known for this pie. I got this recipe many years ago and make it during strawberry season.

While this recipe may be a great pie, it's not the correct recipe for Strawn's Strawberry Pie in Shreveport. Any recipe that uses Corn Starch or eggs is not Strawns.
