Balsamic Strawberry Basil Pie

When I was little, my dad would often put strawberries in salad. When the fruits weren't quite ripe enough, he would stir a little balsamic vinegar and orange juice with the cut strawberries... That concoction would magically make the strawberries much sweeter and tastier.

Somehow, I remembered this trick when I decided to bake this summer classic. Yes, summer is finally here!

  • 1 pie crust
  • 3 cups of strawberries, cut in quarter
  • 3 tbs. sugar
  • 1 tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbs. corn starch
  • 10 leaves of basil, shredded in small pieces
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 F.
  2. Mix all the filling ingredients together.
  3. Pour the filling in the pie-crust.
  4. Bake at 400 F for 5 minutes.
  5. Turn the oven down to 350F,
  6. Bake for an additional 35 minutes.
  7. Let cool before cutting and serving.
