Through trial, error and what I had in the house, I developed this easy glaze to make a yummy fresh strawberry pie -- almost easier than opening a container. Serve with sweetened whipped cream.

  • Bake the pie crust in the preheated oven until puffed and golden-brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and cool completely.

  • Puree 1 cup of strawberries in a blender until smooth. Pour pureed strawberries into a saucepan. Stir in the water, sugar, and cornstarch. Bring to a boil over medium heat until thickened, stirring often. Remove from heat and stir in the orange liqueur. Set aside.

  • Arrange the remaining 3 cups of strawberries decoratively in the prepared pie crust. Pour the glaze over the berries. Refrigerate until glaze is set, about 4 hours.

I was pleasantly surprised by this pie. It turned out very well much better than expected. I might add a little more cornstartch next time because it was a little runny but had a great flavor! I will be making this again. Read More

This recipe turned out great. The orange liquer sets the pie apart from other strawberry pie recipes. Helpful hint: to keep the pie crust from getting soggy spread a thin coat of strawberry cream cheese on the bottom and sides of the crust before adding the strawberries and filling. The cream cheese will protect the pie crust from added moisture. Read More

Absolutely wonderful! I didn't have orange liqueur so I used orange juice instead of water and then added rum instead of orange liqueur. Just like a strawberry dacquari in pie form. This will be made again and again. Such a nice change from those pies that use gelatin for the glaze. Read More

very nice!. Whipped cream required (the real stuff not the fake stuff in the freezer). I enjoyed it so much that later I reduced the amounts and substituted raspberries to make a filling for the Italian Wedding cake recipe on this site. It was fabulous! Read More
