Strawberry Glace Pie

From the Collection of Marg Dye. 

This is what the month of June tastes like in memories…


  • Prepared pie shell
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, whole or halved
  • 1 cup fresh halved strawberries
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  1. Prepare pastry for one 9” pie plate, and prick with a fork.
  2. Bake the shell in hot oven 450F, 10-12 minutes. Cool.
  3. Line shell with 3 cups fresh strawberries, whole or halved.
  4. Simmer 1 cup strawberries and the water in a saucepan about 3 or 4 minutes.
  5. Combine cornstarch with sugar and add to cooked fruit.
  6. Cook until mixture is thick and clear, stirring constantly.
  7. Add lemon juice and cool slightly.
  8. Pour over berries in pastry shell. Chill thoroughly before serving.

Decorate with sweetened whipped cream if desired but it is
unlikely to improve upon what is already perfection itself…
