  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup water

Directions:

  1. Macerate berries in sugar (amount depends on how sweet the berries are) and brandy for a couple hours to overnight.

  4. Place saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.

  6. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water.

  11. Combine the rest of the strawberries with the rest of the glaze and pour into the pie shell.
