This was very tasty and easy. The only change I would make would be to the amount of butter in the crust, since it comes out very floury and crumb-textured. I think 1/2 cup would probably better. Otherwise, the vinegar and pepper give it a nice boost without being overpowering. I used frozen wild blueberries, and since they're pretty tart, I added a tablespoon of sugar to the berries. Thank you for a yummy and easy recipe!
