Bake pie 20 minutes; carefully remove foil.
Bake about 15 - 20 minutes more or until top is puffed and golden brown, and a toothpick inserted 2" from edge comes out clean.
Do not over cook!
When pie is cooled drizzle you glaze over the top, or if you prefer leave the glaze off and serve with vanilla ice cream.
