You can use other fruit. I have used peaches also. The original recipe calls for strawberries. Enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c
    cups sugar, divided
  • 1 tsp
    baking powder
  • 3 c
    all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp
    salt
  • 1
    zest of lemon
  • 2 stick
    cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces

How to Make Strawberry Crumb Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Prehaet the oven to 375° F. Grease a 13×9 inch pan.
  2. In a bowl, combine 1 cup of the sugar, the baking powder and flour. Mix in the salt and the lemon zest, and stir together with a fork. Cut in the butter and egg with a pastry blender (or two knives if you don’t have one) until the largest chunks are about pea-sized. The mixture should be crumbly without much loose flour. Spread about half of the dough mixture in an even layer over the bottom of the prepared pan and press down firmly to form the bottom crust.
  3. In another bowl, stir together the remaining sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Gently mix in the strawberries with a rubber spatula until combined. Spread the berry mixture evenly over the bottom crust. Crumble the remaining dough over the top of the berries. Bake for about 45 minutes or until the top is slightly golden brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares and serving.
