Grandma's Fresh Strawberry Glazed Pie

Today, my mom gave me a beautiful pint of sweet, handpicked strawberries and the first thing that popped into my head was Grandma's Fresh Strawberry Glazed Pie! This pie has been a family favorite for years and is simple to make. I will give you step-by-step directions but before we do, take a look at the finished pie! Here it is chilling in my fridge!


• 9" baked pie shell
• 1 pint fresh strawberries
• 2 1/2 Tbsp. cornstarch
• 1 Tbsp. butter
• 8 oz. cream cheese at room temp. (spreadable consistency)
• 2 Tbsp. milk or cream
• 1 cup of sugar
• few drops red food coloring (today, I didn't even use it because my berries were so red.)

1. Bake pie shell and cool.

2. Wash, strain and hull strawberries.

3. Put aside a 10-15 washed and hulled berries for the bottom of the pie.

4. With the rest of the strawberries, crush with a potato masher or whirl in blender until crushed.

 5. Combine sugar and cornstarch and stir into crushed berries. Add 1/2 cup water as well.

6. Over low heat, stirring constantly, bring to boiling. Mixture will be thick. Add butter and cool.

7. Meanwhile, make filling. Combine 8 oz. soft cream cheese (room temp.) with 2 Tbsp. milk or cream. Spread over bottom of cooked pie shell before adding strawberries.

8. Arrange berries on top of mixture and pour cooled glaze over strawberries.

I would love to hear about how much you love this pie! It is definitely one of my favorites!
Enjoy and BE INSPIRED!
