Glazed Strawberry Pie



It’s Strawberry Season on the Eastern Shore. Sweet berries and cream are a favorite in our house. This pie is one of the first pies I ever made. Mom helped me make the pie shell and glaze and I placed the strawberries and made the whipped cream. A memory as sweet as the pie itself!



Ingredients


6 cups fresh whole strawberries, hulled, divided


1 cup sugar


3 tablespoons cornstarch


3/4 cup water


Few drops red food coloring, optional


1 pastry shell (9 inches), baked (I was short on time and used a frozen shell but you can make your own)


Whipped cream



Directions


Mash 1 cup strawberries; set aside.


In a saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; stir in water and mashed berries.


Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.


Stir in food coloring if desired.


Cook and stir 3 minutes more.


Cool for 10 minutes.


Spread about 1/3 cup glaze over bottom and sides of pie shell.


Halve remaining strawberries; arrange in shell.


Spoon remaining glaze over berries.


Chill for 1-2 hours.


Just before serving, garnish with whipped cream.


Pie is best served the day it's made.



Whipped Cream


1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

1 to 2 tablespoons Confectioner Sugar (optional)


Pour Whipping Cream in the bowl of your stand up mixer


Chill your bowl for a few minutes in the fridge to help the cream whip easier and add Confectioner Sugar.


Whip on high until the cream becomes thick and holds stiff peaks.


About 4 minutes.


Enjoy
