About 20 years ago this was the recipe Shoney’s restaurant used. How I came into this recipe is a friend of my mother asked for it. They charged her for the recipe, but she got it and now it’s mine too! This can be tricky if you don’t let it cook long enough. So please let it thicken enough. Or you’ll tell me it doesn’t work, but it really does, just use patience. In fact my dear husband is over here licking his plate as we speak. I suppose he thinks I can’t see him.
1 deep dish pie crust, or 2 regular sized crusts
1 container of strawberries, sliced
1 regular sized box of strawberry jello
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 cups water
Poke pie crust with fork and bake until browned @ 350 degrees. Mix jello, cornstarch, and sugar in a pot. Add water and cook until thick. Allow to cool. Add strawberries to the cooked pie crust. Pour sauce mix over the strawberries and allow to jell. Enjoy!
