Strawberry Glaze Pie

For the Crust:
10 graham crackers
1/2 cup almonds
2 tablespoons of butter

Pulse the graham crackers and almonds in a food processors. Melt the butter and mix together. Pat down in a pie dish and bake at 350 degrees for 7 min. Let cool.

For the filling:
5 cups of fresh strawberries sliced
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup of water
4 tablespoons of gelatin
2 tablespoons Gran Marnier
2 tablespoons honey

Bring the water, cornstarch, gelatin, gran marnier, and honey to a boil for one minute. Fold in the strawberries and pour on top of the crust. 

For the ganache:
1/4 cup dark chocolate (I used Mast Brothers Brooklyn Blend 73% cocao)
2 tablespoon milk

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and add the milk. Drizzle over strawberries. 

Let cool before serving.

There are a few things I might change next time. I'd add a tiny bit of sugar to the crust to help it bind better. And I'd probably skip the gran marnier in the glaze, maybe save it for the ganache. The short time its boiling doesn't really give it enough time to cook off the booze. But otherwise this is pretty damn yummy for something I threw together without a plan going in to it.
