Strawberry Balsamic Pie with Granola

It’s strawberry season, and this week they were on sale and ridiculously sweet. I made an easy and delicious strawberry pie for a midweek dessert.  I cheated and used a pre-made pie crust but it would have probably been even better if I would have made it myself, if only I had more time.  The filling would also be delicious topping over ice cream or yogurt.

One pre made graham cracker or shortbread pie crust ( make one yourself if your feeling up to it)

2 quarts fresh strawberries washed

2 T Balsamic Vinegar

1/4 sugar

2T water

2t cornstarch

1T fresh lemon juice

For topping:

whipped cream

granola

Slice about 12 large strawberries in half and cover bottom of pie shell ( use whole strawberries if they are small)

For filling: slice remaining strawberries, Place in nonstick skillet with balsamic vinegar over medium heat for 3 minutes.

Combine water and cornstarch in a small bowl until dissolved, add this and sugar to pan and bring to a boil.

Heat for 1 minute stirring constantly, remove from heat and add lemon juice. Cool and pour over strawberries in pie shell.

Cover and refrigerate until cool, about 3 hours.

Top with whipped cream and granola.
