Strawberry Crumb Bars

Here is a delicious way to use fresh strawberries. There are many strawberry bar recipes, but most do not include spices. Just the right spices will always make the flavors of the recipe even better. This recipe uses two spices - True Cinnamon and Nutmeg - combined with fresh strawberries to give these bars a delightful sweet flavor. They are great as a snack or a dessert. So yummy and hard to resist!


2 1/3 cups flour

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup butter (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)

2 Tblspns butter

1/4 cup light brown sugar

1/2 tsp Nutmeg

1 tsp True Cinnamon

1/2 cup quick cooking oats

1 1/4 cup fresh strawberries chopped into small pieces

3/4 cup strawberry jelly or seedless jam

1 tsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp strawberry extract


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray the bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 inch jelly roll pan. CRUST: Combine flour, granulated sugar and salt. Using an electric mixer, add (one piece at a time) the 1 cup of butter to the flour mixture. Take out 1 1/4 cup of the combined flour/butter mixture and set it aside. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan (press firmly). Bake in the preheated oven for 14 minutes or until lightly golden. STREUSEL TOP: Add brown sugar and oats to the reserved flour/butter mixture. With fingers, work in the 2 Tblspns of butter. Combined mixture should be small pea-sized clumps. FILLING: Combine jelly, berries, spices, lemon juice, and extract in a small bowl. Mash the berries with a fork and combine (making sure to leave some small chunks of berries). Spread the berry mixture over the hot crust and then sprinkle the streusel topping over the filling. Bake (375 degree oven) for 22 - 25 minutes or until top is golden.
