These sweet and irresistible strawberry crumb bars are the perfect spring dessert!


INGREDIENTS:


1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon 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 teaspoons corn starch


INSTRUCTIONS:


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.
