Strawberry season is over but I am still trying to squeeze every last strawberry out of it that I can get a hold of. So I have a couple great strawberry recipes this week and then its all peaches, apples, and pumpkins.
This pie has the strawberries, lots of delicious, sweet strawberries. A cooked jam layer and a fresh layer, but its extra good cause it has a sweet and tangy cream cheese layer too. The perfect pie to send out the summer with.
Strawberry Glace Pie
Recipe Source: Perfect Pies Cookbook
1 Prebaked Pie Crust
1 cup Strawberries, pitted and mashed
1 cup Granulated Sugar
3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1/2 cup Water
3 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup Heavy Cream
1/3 cup Powdered Sugar
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 cup Strawberries, thinly sliced
In a medium saucepan combine the strawberries, sugar, cornstarch and water. Cook over high heat and cook over high heat and stir for about 10 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Once cooled place in the fridge for at east 6 hours.
In a medium bowl beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until its smooth. Add the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Mix until fully mixed and it has medium peaks.
Spoon the cream into the pie crust. Cover the cream with sliced strawberries. Spread the glace evenly over the strawberries. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
