“I have never had a strawberry pie with a nut topping before and this was delicious. The addition of balsamic vinegar really helps sweeten the berries. This makes a *lot* of crust mixture. Times do not include 4 hours of chilling the pie or letting the nut topping cool. From www.WCTV.com by Barbra Crumpacker of Archbold Memorial Hospital.”
