Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter.

  • Bring water, 1/2 cup sugar, and cornstarch to a low boil, stirring constantly, in a saucepan. Add strawberries and basil and stir to coat. Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish. Cut 1 tablespoon butter into pieces; dot on tops of strawberries.

  • Unravel crescent rolls and rip into pieces, arranging them on top of strawberries as desired, adding as little or as much as you'd like. Melt remaining tablespoon butter in a microwave in a microwave-safe dish, about 10 seconds. Brush melted butter over crescent rolls. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon on top.

  • Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until bubbly and golden, about 25 minutes, covering with aluminum foil for the last 5 minutes to prevent overbrowning.

Family loved it! Followed directions except brought water and sugar to a boil dissolving sugar before adding in cornstarch as a slurry. Chiffonaded basil. Used crescent roll rounds and used the strips to make a lattice topping. I thought that the amount of melted butter was a little excessive but I glad I ignored my intuition and used it all anyway! Allowed to cool long enough to mostly set before serving warm. Would be great with vanilla ice cream! This recipe just says "3 strawberries " which is obviously incorrect. I used 2 1-lb containers.
