Strawberry Crisp

Strawberry Crisp

“Did you eat your soup yet? Dessert is ready, but you have to finish your soup before you can have desert”. That is what my mom used to say to us when we were kids back in Colombia. Well, she said it in Spanish ;-)

Thank God I am not a kid anymore and I can eat my dessert any time that I want, even without eaten my soup :-)

This Strawberry Crisp is the easiest dessert that I have ever made and is especially good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Buen provecho!



(About 6 servings))


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup old fashioned oatmeal

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • Filling

  • 2 cups strawberries, stems removed, halved
  • lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Strawberry Crisp w/ ice cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. lace the strawberries in a bowl and add the lemon juice and sugar. Set aside.
  3. For the topping: Combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, oatmeal and butter in a bowl. Mix well until well combined.
  4. Pour the strawberry mixture in the baking dish. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the fruit.
  5. Bake until the topping is crisp and golden brown and the strawberry filling bubbles slowly, about 40 minutes. Serve warm.

Soup first, dessert at end this motto sounds familiar to me! This sweet crisp worth the soup of before, in my memories :)

Sounds like exactly like my mom:-)

The strawberries at the market lately have been so sweet, juicy and ripe- just perfect for this dessert. Look wonderful!

Fruit crisps with ice cream too awesome to describe. Definitely one of my favorite desserts. Your strawberry crisp looks fabulous, as always.

I never think about using strawberries in a crsip, Erica. That’s going to change here and now! Your dish looks fabulous!
