Last week, we celebrated my mother-in-law's 99th birthday. In her heyday, she was a fantastic, prolific cook; so I thought I would share one of her recipes with you.
STRAWBERRY GLACE' PIE
Ione's Strawberry Glace' Pie
Bring to a boil:
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup cornstarch dissolved in 3/4 cup water
Cook 10 minutes
1 tablespoon lemon juice
few drops vanilla
red food coloring
Coat 2 pints prepared whole strawberries with glace' and put in a pre-baked pie shell.
Chill and serve with whipped cream.
In her recipe, she said to use whole strawberries; but the ones I bought were huge, so I sliced them. This created excess moisture, so the pie was a little soupy; but still tasted wonderful as I remembered from years gone by. Lesson learned: always do what your mother-in-law says - leave those berries whole!

I'm taking a temporary break from the Land of Blog for some rejuvenation and attitude adjustment. See you soon!
