Strawberry Crumb Bars

Strawberry Crumb Bars It’s the most wonderful time of year! No, I’m not talking about Christmas, silly gooses! I’m talking about berry season! I can’t think of one type of fruit that I love more than berries.  I eat so many strawberries, blueberries and raspberries during the next three months I might as well become Violet Beauregarde!

From eating them straight up, in my yogurt, covered in chocolate, in salads, crumbles, cakes, scones, the options are endless!  Nicole from Daily Dish Recipes is hosting our #SundaySupper berry recipe party this week and she is correct when she describes them as fabulous.  They just simply are.

Strawberry Crumb Bars Having picked up the first batch of strawberries at the farmer’s market last week, I knew I wanted to do something that really showcased freshly picked flavor. A simple cookie crust, with strawberries piled high was exactly the answer I was looking for.  The strawberries become sweet and jammy as they cook away in the oven.  Plus I couldn’t resist adding a little crumb topping to the mix.

    For the crust:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar or pure cane sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F. and line a 8X8 square baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of your food processor, place the flour, salt and butter.
  3. Pulse 8-10 times or until the butter resembles coarse sand.
  4. Press the dough into your prepared pan, creating an even layer on the bottom and the sides.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes and remove from oven when the edges start to turn a light golden brown.
  6. In a medium bowl, mix together the strawberries, sugar and cornstarch.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar and butter until small clumps form.
  8. Pour them over the par-baked crust in an even layer. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the strawberries and bake for 20 minutes.

    Crumb bar = perfect snack. Or at least something that calls my name all day and night. Your bars are so bright with the red from the strawberries. How cheery and lovely for summer.

    I made some raspberry crumb bars the other day, but the recipe called for raspberry preserves, and the whole thing was way too sweet for me! This sounds so much better using fresh fruit–can’t wait to try this!
