Toasted Sesame Blueberry Galette

Toasted Sesame Blueberry Galette

Did you know the secret to a flaky, tender pie crust is vinegar? Vinegar helps prevent gluten from forming, so when you substitute some of the water in a recipe with vinegar, you’ll end up with a flakier crust. I upgraded my vinegar pie crust with a splash of @nakanoflavors Toasted Sesame Rice Vinegar to add a mild nutty flavor to my pie crust! NAKANO® Toasted Sesame Rice Vinegar is a new must-have pantry staple and I’ve been using it to make all sorts of sweet and savory dishes! I used the pie crust to make a Toasted Sesame Blueberry Galette. Blueberry and sesame seeds go so well together and it’s a new flavor combo that I’m now obsessed with! What’s your favorite weird-but-totally-delicious flavor combo?
