I only used this recipe for the glaze because I have a family favorite recipe for Strawberry Pizza that we've been making for years that uses a store bought glaze for strawberries. I just never really cared for the glaze. In my opinion, it's too sweet, and the texture is just too thick. I wanted to try the recipe with blackberries instead of strawberries and I wanted to make a glaze that would compliment the flavor of the berries so I gave this one a try. I had to make a few changes based on what I had on hand, but it sure turned out delicious. I only had pineapple/orange juice instead of orange juice. I didn't have an orange to zest, so I used the zest of one very small lemon. I admit the flavor of the blackberries were a little overwhelmed by the lemon flavor, but that was okay with me because I LOVE fresh lemon flavor. This almost had the subtle taste of lemon cream pie. What I loved most about this glaze as compared to the store bought stuff, is the thinner consistency. This was just enough cornstarch to thicken the mixture up, but still let you drizzle it over the fruit. At first I was worried that it would run off the edge of the crust, but it worked out perfectly. I can't wait to try this again and experiment with different fruits and berry juices. Thank you for this great recipe.
