Strawberry Glacé Pie

20 Jul

9-inch baked pie shell

6 cups fresh strawberries (about 1.5 quarts)

1 cup sugar

3 tablespoons cronstarch

1/2 cup water

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

 

Bake pie shell. Mash enough berries to measure 1 cup. Stir together sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in water and crushed berries. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Cool.

Beat cream cheese until smooth and spread on the bottom of baked and cooled pie shell. Fill shell with remaining berries (sliced, quartered, or left whole); pour cooked berry mixture over the top. Chill at least 3 hours or until set. Enjoy!

Be sure to let it set! Otherwise it could leak like this ^

Variations/Notes:

~Use 6 cups of raspberries instead of strawberries

~Serve with lightly whipped cream

~Use more cream cheese and spread up the sides as well

~Add sugar and coco powder to cream cheese to make it chocolate-y or melt dark/semisweet chocolate on the crust, let set, then spread on cream cheese

The possibilities are endless!

Happy Baking!
