Strawberry Crumb Bars
I love the crunchy crumb topping, the sweet fruit, and the buttery crust. These bars are so fun and perfect for this time of year!
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 3 cups Flour
- 1 cup Cold butter, cut into pieces
- 1 Egg, beaten
- 4 cups Fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 4 tsp Corn starch
Preheat oven to 375. Grease (or line with foil) a 9 x 13 pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, baking powder, salt, and flour. Cut in the butter using two knives or a pastry blender, until pieces are no bigger than pea sized. Stir in the egg to form a crumbly dough. Pat half of the dough in an even layer in the prepared pan. In a medium bowl, toss the strawberries with the 1/2 cup sugar and corn starch, then spread the strawberry mixture on top of the dough in the pan. Crumble the remaining dough evenly over the strawberry layer. Bake 45-50 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool before slicing and serving.
