Shoney’s makes a delicious Strawberry pie that is easy to prepare. There aren’t as many of these as their used to be, so you can prepare one at home.
Enjoy this delicious homemade strawberry pie when you make it at home. This recipe uses a prepared pie crust. You can either make you own favorite recipe for pie crust, or you may want to buy a prepared one that you bake yourself. I personally think the refrigerated pie crusts are quite good.
This is a great recipe for Strawberry pie, it is very simple to make. If you aren’t an experienced baker this is an easy pie to prepare and you should feel confident in making this delicious pie. I love to make this copycat recipe for Shoney’s Strawberry pie during the spring and the summer.

Shoney's Strawberry Pie
This pie is so good one slice won't be enough!
- 1 cup All Purpose Flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 stick butter
- 1 1/2 tablespoons shortening
- 1/8 cup Ice water
- 1 cup Sugar
- 3 tablespoons Corn Starch
- 1 pint Strawberries
- 1 12 ounces can 7-UP
- Whipped cream
Crust: Put flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Cut the butter, and shortening into the flour. Process a few seconds until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Drop by drop add the water, processing briefly. The whole process should take about 20 to 30 seconds. Wrap and chill for an hour. Remove from refrigerator, and let stand 15 minutes before rolling. (The Martha Stewart Cookbook.)
This pie shell will need to be baked before you place the strawberries in the pie shell. Poke the crust with a fork to pierce it all over so when it is baked it won't fluff up. Bake the pie shell at 350 degrees until golden brown. Allow the pie crust to cool before adding the strawberries.
Filling: In a medium-sized saucepan combine sugar, cornstarch, and 7-UP until creamy. Cook over a medium to a medium high heat until the mixture becomes thick. When this mixture becomes thick, cool to room temperature, and add a couple of drops of red food coloring. Wash, and cut strawberries into quarters, or smaller depending on how large they are. Sprinkle a teaspoon or two of sugar on the strawberries, and place them into the shell. Pour the cooled 7-Up mixture over the strawberries. Allow this to set for a few minutes. Serve with plenty of Whipped Cream.Print Recipe
