Strawberry Crumb Bars

How to make Strawberry Crumb bars

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.
  2. Chop the strawberries and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together sugar, flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. In a measuring cup or small bowl, beat egg with a fork. Add the egg and vanilla to the flour mixture.
  5. Using a fork or a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture. Work with the dough until the pieces are very small. Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of the dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  6. In another bowl, stir together the sugar and cornstarch. Stir in the chopped strawberries. Spoon the strawberry mixture evenly over the crust.
  7. Crumble the remaining dough over the strawberry layer.
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is slightly golden brown.
  9. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
