This recipe has gone through a lot of metamorphis'(sp) if you have the correct spelling let me know. I found this originally on vegweb.com and couldn't find a strawberry glaze to my liking - so here it is, at last. I have learned a lot about "vegan" cooking and recipes - I hope nothing in this recipe offends anyone. They have said that the pie-crust is vegan and also the glaze I chose to prepare. The pie must chill 5-6 hours.

  5. Serve hot or cold.
  6. Make the Pie:.
  7. Take crust and starting with bananas layer them on the bottom.
  8. Then layer strawberries.
  9. And so on, ending with strawberries on top, until crust is full.
  10. Pour glaze on top so it covers the pie and fruit on the bottom is also covered.
  11. Refrigerate for 5-6 hours.
  12. Garnish with strawberries and served with whipped cream, if desired.
  13. *Experiment with a 3rd layer of sliced Kiwi.
  14. ** Another variation of glaze: stir in 1/8 cup of Grand Marnier or Cointreau, after you take it off the heat.
