Strawberry Glaze Pie

"WE STILL GO OUT to the strawberry farms to pick our own berries for this pie, and a delicious one it is! "This pie was a family favorite while I was growing up, and it has become the same with my own family, which is nearly all grown. "Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits, and when they're in season, you can bet this is a treat we have often!"

    Haven’t made, but question. Did I miss something regarding the crushed berries in the glaze. How much? many strawberries?!!

    Delicious! I love that it doesn't use jello and I didn't use the red food coloring. A family favorite!

    Delicious glaze. I cut the sugar back to 2/3 cup but the rest is perfect. I mixed the berries and glaze and refrigerated them out of the crust. Right before serving I added the glazed berries to the crust and topped with fresh homemade whipped cream. OH MY WORD! So yummy! I'm going to try it with blueberries, peaches, cherries and any other fruit you can put into a crust!

    Absolutely delicious! Just like I remember from when I was a kid. Prefer the flavor very much to pies with an artificially flavored strawberry gelatin base. Definitely eat it within 36 hours of making it! Wonderful recipe!

    I tried this pie so that we could have variety. I usually make my strawberry pies with a gelatin base rather than a strawberry base. This pie is TOO HIGHLY CONCENTRATED with strawberries. My husband (who has never been allergic to strawberries before) had a severe allergic reaction after eating a slice of this pie and drinking the remaining juice on his plate. Please be aware!
