If you are going to make a pie....

Try this one! I made it for Easter and we all really liked it. It tasted wonderful and made me feel like summer is just around the corner! {I added more than 2 cups of strawberries.}

I tried a crust recipe from my hometown cookbook, Beyond Granola....Recipes from the 3rd Street Market. It's a popular local restaurant which serves wonderful homemade soups, sandwiches and pies. Oh...and homemade granola! Two of my friends gave me the cookbook when my dog Griffey died. I miss him so's so true when they say a dog is a mans best friend! He certainly was mine. Anyway...I really love this cookbook and have enjoyed its many recipes. Here's a close up of the crust:

And here is the recipe:

Have a great day!


  1. Love the look of the pie...I bet it's yummy. And as're recipe cards are fab!!! Kind regards,Jackie

  2. What fun paper for your pie recipe background. I like the idea of a granola crust for a pie. But I would need to try it with something other than one made from Jello. My whole life whenever I have eaten Jello I have spontaneously regurgitated it (trying to use nicer words here).

  3. yummmmmmmmmmmers ..this looks fab!!

  4. Your recipe cards are gorgeous! And strawberry pie is my all-time favorite. I will definitely try these.
