A Spring Pie For Any Season

As you all know, I have a problem with pie crusts. I'm terrible with them, they're my baking Achilles' heel. Yet, I absolutely adore them. So when I found this pie on, I was over the moon. This springtime pie has a crushed-graham-cracker crust and is filled with a mixture of strawberries splashed with balsamic vinegar. There's no crust to mess up and the filling sounds amazing.

Crumb crusts are much easier than the classic crusts. It never seems to fail that regular crusts always give me fits.

A pie, to me, must have a proper crust. But I'm biased because I love making pies and pie crust; I'd make a pie everyday if there were enough people in my house to eat it!
