  • 12 small fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 12 fresh basil leaves
  • 3 ounces Brie cheese, cut into 12 small pieces (about ½-by-1-inch)
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic glaze (see Tip)

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Thread a strawberry, basil leaf and piece of cheese onto each of 12 toothpicks. Drizzle with balsamic glaze just before serving.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Hold (without glaze) at room temperature for up to 1 hour or refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
  • Equipment: 12 appetizer-size skewers or toothpicks
  • Balsamic glaze is balsamic vinegar that's cooked until it's very thick. Look for it with other vinegars in well-stocked supermarkets. Or make it yourself by boiling 1 cup balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until syrupy and reduced to about ¼ cup, 10 to 14 minutes.
