Super easy and super quick, this glaze works on both sweet and savory dishes. Along with strawberries, it is equally amazing on seared tuna or a caprese salad.

Balsamic Strawberries with Cookies n Cream Ice Cream
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
Yield :
4 - 6 servings


  • 1 1/2 cups good quality balsamic vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch cinnamon (use only for dessert applications)
  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 1 pint cookies and cream ice cream
  • Few basil leaves, cut in strips


  1. In a saucepan combine balsamic vinegar and sugar. Bring to a boil and turn to a strong simmer.
  2. Cook mixture until it starts to thicken and thinly coats the bottom of saucepan when pan is tilted. Reduce to slightly less than 1/2 cup. Time will depend on type of heat source and pan. Do not worry as you can thin out the glaze later with a few drops of almond liquor or water if it is too thick.
  3. Once cooled check the consistency, it should coat a strawberry without sliding off immediately. If too thin, return to heat.
  4. Add vanilla extract and cinnamon.
  5. Arrange washed and stemmed strawberries on plates or in bowl and serve with ice cream.
  6. Drizzle with glaze and sprinkle with basil.


NOTE: You might consider making the glaze outside on the grill as it creates a strong smell during cooking.
