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!


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


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.
