Strawberry Crisp

Strawberry Crisp

Our strawberry patch has been pumping out the strawberries this season! I’ve made a few batches of strawberry freezer jam, a skillet cobbler, a buckle with pecan streusel, and now this strawberry crisp. The sweet berries get even sweeter while baking and the cinnamon oat crisp on top makes the dessert extra special. I served this warm strawberry crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was a huge hit with the entire family. There is something pretty wonderful about growing your own fruit and then making something so delicious with it!

How to Make a Strawberry Crisp

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Butter a large baking dish then place it on a baking sheet.

Combine the strawberries and sugar together until well combined. Add the cornstarch and vanilla extract; mix very well. Pour into the baking dish.

Make the crisp topping by combining the oats, flour, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, and salt; mix until well combined. Add the bits of softened butter then using your fingers, cut the butter into the mixture with a pastry blender or your fingers until pea-size clumps form. Sprinkle the mixture over the top of the strawberry mixture.

Place into the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Serve with scoops of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
