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!"

    8 servings

Ingredients

  • Dough for single-crust pie
  • 6 cups fresh whole strawberries, hulled, divided
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2-4 drops red food coloring, optional
  • Whipped cream

Directions

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Line crust with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice. Bake on a lower oven rack until edge is golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake until bottom is golden brown, 3-6 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 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. If desired, stir in food coloring. Cook and stir 3 minutes more. Cool for 10 minutes.
  • Spread about 1/3 cup glaze over bottom and sides of crust. Halve remaining strawberries; arrange in crust. Spoon remaining glaze over berries. Chill for 1-2 hours. Just before serving, garnish with whipped cream.
Editor's Note
Combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp. salt; cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 3-5 Tbsp. ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
