Learn how to make these delicious strawberry crumb bars!! With strawberries just now starting to come into season, this is the perfect way to whip up a quick and easy dessert. You can also use blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, rhubarb, peaches, etc for these.

What you’ll need:
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar, divided
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 large egg
1/2 cup butter, cold and cubed
1 lb fresh strawberries*
2 Tbsp cornstarch

In a food processor, combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in cold cubed butter and egg and pulse until fine crumbs form. You can also do this by hand with a fork or pastry cutter in a large bowl. In another bowl, combine strawberries, remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cornstarch until berries are coated evenly. Grease an 8″x8″ glass baking dish. Pour in 2/3rds of the crumb mixture and press firmly into the bottom. Pour strawberry mixture over top and then top with remaining crumbs. Bake in a preheated 350*F oven for 40-45 minutes. Let cool and then serve either by themselves or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Makes 9 bars. Enjoy!!

*you can also use frozen whole strawberries without syrup if you cannot find or get fresh berries.
