STRAWBERRY CRUMB BARS

Strawberry Crumb Bars - Butter With A Side of BreadOur family adores fresh strawberries! I’ve had crumb-type bars in the past that were made with jam. This version is instead made with fresh strawberries and the flavor is amazing. It’s not overly sweet, which I appreciate. I love how simple they are to make too- other than the strawberries, you likely have everything you need in your pantry. I adapted them from a recipe I found in All Recipes magazine. They used blueberries, which I think would be delicious as well! Enjoy!

Strawberry Crumb Bars

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, divided
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, diced
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla or almond extract
  • 1 TBSP cornstarch

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray an 8×8 glass pan with non-stick spray.

In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, 1/2 cup of the brown sugar, baking powder, salt, butter and the egg. Use 2 forks or a pastry cutter to mix until well combined and crumbly.

Place diced strawberries in a separate bowl and add remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar, extract and cornstarch. Stir until well coated.

Press about 2/3 of the crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan. Use the bottom of a measuring cup to press it down into the pan. Top with strawberries, making sure they’re evenly distributed over the crust. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture on top.

Bake for 40-45 minutes; until light brown. Cool completely before cutting. Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days.
