Strawberry Crumb Bars

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes

Yield: 9


  • 2 cups fresh strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (8 Tablespoons) butter (1 stick butter)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Either grease with butter and flour, or spray with baking spray, an 8x8 inch pan, or place parchment paper on the bottom of the pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together white sugar, flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a measuring cup or small bowl, beat an egg with a fork. Add the egg and vanilla to the flour mixture. 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.
  4. In another bowl, stir together the sugar, cornstarch. Stir in the strawberries. Spoon the strawberry mixture evenly over the bottom crust.
  5. Crumble the remaining dough over the strawberry filling layer.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is slightly golden brown.


Cool completely before cutting into squares. I recommend refrigerating until ready to serve.
