Strawberry Glaze Pie


1-1/2 quarts large fresh strawberries
1 cup sugar (or less to taste)
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon butter
Red food coloring (optional)
9-inch pie shell, baked (see following recipe)
1 cup heavy cream, whipped


Hull and wash the strawberries, and drain well. Cook sugar, water, cornstarch, and ½ cup crushed berries until thick and clear. Add butter, and food coloring, if desired, to make a bright red glaze. Fill the cooled pie shell with remaining whole berries, saving 4 or 5 of the largest berries to use as a garnish. Pour cooked sauce over berries in pie shell and refrigerate until ready to serve. (The glaze thickens as it cools.) Garnish pie with whipped cream and large berries.

Plain Pastry


Serves 8.
