Directions:

  1. To make the glaze, place the sugar and cornstarch in a 1-quart pot, and stir to mix well. Add the juice, and stir until the cornstarch is dissolved. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whisk. Reduce the heat to low, and cook and stir for 1 minute, or until the mixture is thickened and bubbly.
  2. Remove the glaze from the heat, and sprinkle the gelatin over the top. Whisk for about 1 minute, or until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  3. Place the berries in a large bowl. Stir the glaze, and pour it over the berries, tossing gently to coat.
  4. Spread the strawberry mixture over the prepared crust, and chill for several hours, or until the glaze is set. Serve cold.
Tips:
  • To save time and effort, substitute 1 1/3 cups of ready-made strawberry glaze for the homemade glaze.
