  • For glaze, in medium saucepan, combine 3 cups of the water, sugar, and gelatin.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  • In small bowl, gradually mix remaining 1 cup water into cornstarch until smooth.
  • Add to saucepan, whisking constantly with a wire whisk.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes or until mixture is thick and fairly clear. (I suggest stirring constantly).
  • Stir in food color.

  • Do not refrigerate.
  • For pies, spread 1/4 cup glaze onto bottom of each pie shell.

  • Spoon half the mixture into each pie shell, arranging berries attractively.
  • Spoon half the remaining glaze of each pie, smoothing and sealing glaze to edge of crust with spoon.
