Strawberry Crisp

I am beyond excited that it is Strawberry season!!  That means I can whip up this Strawberry Crisp with fresh picked farm ripe strawberries!

Have you ever head of a Strawberry Crisp?  Not a Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp, or Strawberry Blueberry Crisp or Strawberry and anything else crisp.  Just Strawberry.

I suspect, like most you haven’t – or so that’s what every keeps telling me!  But why not?!  Who says you can’t do just strawberries?  

Why do yummy ripe strawberries have to share the stage with another fruit?  Why can’t it shine in it’s own dessert?  

Well I say it can!

I know in some parts of the country, people have already started picking fresh strawberries.  

But for us, in the frozen tundra called Minnesota, we are just beginning to approach strawberry season.  Really it doesn’t hit full strawberry picking season until mid June.  MID JUNE!  That seems like a forever wait!  

Especially while in Florida they are picking fresh strawberries in March!

There is really nothing better than a fresh ripe and perfectly sweetened strawberry.  However, if fresh strawberries are out of season, don’t be shy and miss out on this tasty treat – use frozen!

I’m participating in a Strawberry round up and there are some to die for strawberry recipes by my fellow foodie friends that you must try.  I’m drooling over all of them!

Every year I attempt a few new strawberry recipes and always whip up a few old favorites.  

This recipe for Strawberry Crisp is a twist on my Strawberry Blueberry Crisp recipe I posted last year.

However the first time I made this it was a bit too runny.  So alas, I added a little cornstarch to the berries the second time and oh my, oh my, wow.  

The Strawberry Crisp turned out perfect.  So perfect, you are going to want to make this…TODAY!

I love how easy this is to make.  You can use frozen berries in the winter or fresh berries in the spring.  It also works great for your wilted strawberries that you just aren’t sure what to do with.

I love crisp and I really loved this Strawberry Crisp. It makes the perfect spring treat packed with flavor, easy to make and perfect as a make ahead dessert.  

This recipe is so easy a novice baker could whip it up with great success!  Go on, give it a try. I promise you’ll love it!

    I love a crisp, one of my favorite desserts. I have never had a straight strawberry one usually mix it with rhubarb but this looks fantastic!!

  2. Norma

    I just made this and it is fabulous! I had never heard of a straight strawberry crisp before. I found your recipe when looking for something to make from some fresh strawberries. This is my new favorite dessert!

    1. Janelle

      Norma I’m so glad you gave this recipe a try! Strawberries are so good on their own they don’t need another fruit hogging the spotlight! Hope you’ll try a few of my other recipes too! Thanks for your comment you’ve made my day!

    the ads on your sight are ridiculous. I can’t even print the recipe without printing an ad…. really frustrating and a waste of ink!!

    1. Janelle

      Dawn this is the first I’m hearing any issues with ad issues on printing. I’ll contact my ad company right away! Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I will say however, that ads are a must for the website so I wont be getting rid of them, just hopefully making them more user friendly. Ads are how I get paid for providing this free service to you. I’m sorry that at times they are annoying, however it’s them or making you subscribe to my recipes, which isn’t something I’m willing to do! I hope you’ll forgive the ads and enjoy the recipe!

    2. Janelle

      Dawn I wanted to give you an update! The ads have been removed from the printing section!! So now when you print a recipe there wont be any ads or wasted ink.

      Removing them from the website just isn’t an option. You don’t buy a magazine or visit a news website without having to pick over the ads, it’s just expected. Same thing goes for my website. It takes a LOT of time and hard work to create, photograph, edit and a lot of social media work to get my recipes out there and the ads are what pay the bills so I can do this. I will say though, that if each reader made a donation of $5 or less to use my website (less than your favorite magazine) then I could go ad free! And you and everyone else would never have to be bothered with an ad again! If interested in being the first one, I’ll be happy to provide you with my paypal details! 🙂

        The ads have not been removed from the printing section. Just tried it. Still ads and wasted ink when you print a recipe .

        1. Janelle

          Thanks Jean! I’ve contacted my tech guy to let him know. UGH. Round two of trying to remove those pesky ads from the print screen! Thanks for letting me know!

  4. Katie

    If you wanted to make this ahead of time… do you suggest preparing as directed (except the baking), placing in fridge, then baking when ready to serve? Or bake, cool, refrigerate, and reheat when ready to serve? Thanks! Sounds delicious!

    1. Janelle

      Katie that is a great question. If you make it ahead of time and don’t bake it, I’d add an extra teaspoon of cornstarch. Just prepare it as directed and cover. I’d not make it more than 2 days ahead of time though. If you decide to bake it, then refrigerate it and rebate it, you can do that too. Although I’ll be honest, I really like this cold too. Then again, I’m a cold pizza kind of girl too! Let me know which method you decide and and how it turns out!

  5. Rachel DeStefano

    Id never had strawberry crisp but decided to make this last night to use up a bunch of strawberries i had. Omg, this was sooooo good! Definitely a recipe I’ll be making again and again.

    1. Janelle

      Rachel, I get that comment so often! It’s almost like no one ever thought that Strawberries could stand on their own. But man, they are amazing when you just let them shine for themselves in this dish! I’m so glad you like it as much as we did!
