I think I’ve found my new favorite non-chocolate dessert. Strawberry and balsamic is such a great combo, and I was recently inspired to add basil to the mix. I was hesitant to taste it, but OH. MY. It is amazing.
I’m always nervous about pie and tart recipes because I find the dough to be finicky, and you can’t taste it to make sure it came out okay before you serve it. This one, though, you make the filling in a separate bowl, so you’ll know its consistency before you put it into the shell. You can’t go wrong!
Well, that’s not true. My first pie crust collapsed on itself! But I gave it another go and I’m glad I did. As a note, I don’t provide a pie crust recipe below so if you have a favorite, use that. If you don’t, you can get pre-made crusts at the store!
I also was nervous about the balsamic because the glaze had a strong vinegar smell, but it’s so sweet and delicious. I started off putting just a little bit on, and then I went back and added A LOT more!
This dessert was so good, that I forgot to take photos. I guess I’ll just have to make it again soon…
