Strawberry Crumble Bars

All I need to say about these is that they are DELICIOUS! Seriously, you need to try them! Especially while strawberries are in their prime! Yummmmmy!

Strawberry Crumble Bars


1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cold unsalted butter (2 sticks or 8 ounces)
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
Zest and juice of one lemon
4 cups fresh strawberries, cut into smaller pieces
1/2 cup white sugar
4 teaspoons cornstarch
 Preheat the oven to 375, and grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. 

In a large bowl, combine flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest. Using a mixer beat in the egg and cold butter... a little persistence and you will have a crumbly dough. It takes a few minutes but it is SO much easier than doing it by hand.

In a separate bowl, combine lemon juice, corn starch and 1/2 cup of sugar. Stir in the berries until well coated.

Press half of the crumble/dough mixture into the pan, forming the crust. Pour the strawberry mixture
on top of that, spreading semi evenly. Pour the rest of the crumble/dough on top. 

Bake for 45 minutes, and let cool completely before attempting to cut or they will be too soft.


Just look at that yummy texture! I made this as an after school snack last week and the girls absolutely loved them. Also we had a couple left over that I refrigerated for the next day and they were even better! Enjoy!
