  5. To a measuring cup, add 1 tsp apple cider vinegar. Fill to 1/4 cup with dairy free milk
  6. Add non-dairy milk/vinegar mixture and maple syrup to flour mixture, stirring to combine, taking care to not over mix
  7. If your dough is too sticky, add a tablespoon of your reserved 1/4 cup of flour at a time

  15. Allow strawberries and syrup to sit for at least 30 minutes, allowing juices to be released
