Strawberry Crumb Bars
These Strawberry Crumb Bars taste like fresh strawberry pie but in bar form. They are made with a fresh strawberry filling and just scream summertime flavor.
- 3 cups fresh strawberries tops removed; sliced and quartered
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1½ tsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- ½ tsp pure vanilla extract optional
Crust and Crumble
- 1½ sticks unsalted butter cubed and cold
- 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup almond flour
- ½ cup light brown sugar packed
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
In a small bowl, toss together the strawberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Transfer to a medium sized sauce pan.
Over medium heat, bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequwntyl. Boil for about 1 min. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes, or until thickened and strawberries softened.
Remove from heat and stir in the one tablespoon of butter and vanilla extract, if using. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Allow to cool completely before proceeding to crust.
Crust and Crumble
Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and line a 9X9-inch pan with parchment, set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, almond flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender or two forks until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. It's okay if there are a few larger chunks of butter, they will melt into the rest of the crust.
Press ¾ of the crust into the prepare pan. Pat down into an even layer. Pour the cooled strawberry filling over the crust layer, and smooth out evenly. Crumble the remaining crust evenly over the strawberry filling.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until set and the crumble on top is golden brown. Allow to cool completely before removing from pan and cutting into slices.
