Strawberry season is a favorite in our household, and today’s recipe for strawberry crisp from PS contributor Ann of On Sutton Place is one that is sure to be added to our menu very soon! Delicious, sweet and oh-so-simple to make, this is the perfect summer dessert.
Hello again! One of my favorite things to make, any time of the year, is a fruit crisp. A crisp goes by many other names. Cobbler, pandowdy, buckle or Brown Betty. They all have some sort of topping over sweetened fruit. You can safely bet that the topping has flour, sugar, oats and some sort of fat to hold it all together…usually butter. The most common crisp is, of course, apple. My favorite though is Strawberry Crisp and that’s what I’m sharing today.
This recipe is quick and easy enough for a weekday dinner and pretty enough for a picnic or party. It can easily be doubled and baked in a 9 x 13 pan. This particular combination of topping ingredients makes enough for a nice, thick layer of crunchy goodness. There’s nothing worse than stingy topping on a fruit crisp!…
Nothing says summer like a heaping slice of strawberry pie. Today’s recipe for fresh strawberry-lime pie couples the sweetness of summer berries with the lively tartness of lime.

- 1 9-inch pastry crust
- 1 usa dry quart fresh strawberries
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 4 tablespoon corn starch
- ¾ cup water
- 1 lime
- ½ cup whipping cream
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla
- 2 teaspoon granulated sugar
- Hull the strawberries. Slice half of the berries, and set aside. (You should have about 2 cups of sliced berries.) Place the remaining berries in the bowl of a food processor. Process until very finely chopped. (You should have about 1 cup of pureed berries.)
- Arrange the sliced berries in the baked pastry shell. Set aside.
- In a medium saucepan, combine the pureed berries and 1 cup granulated sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Whisk the corn starch into the water, and gradually add to the strawberry mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring constantly, for about 10 minutes, or until mixture is considerably thickened. Remove from heat; stir in lime juice. Pour mixture over prepared pastry shell, spreading evenly with a spoon. Chill for at least 4 hours.
- Just before serving, whip the cream, 2 teaspoons granulated sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form. Serve chilled pie with a dollop of whipped cream and additional berries or lime wedges, if desired.
To achieve the pretty look of canned whipped topping without the chemicals, prepare whipped cream the traditional way, and then place it in a piping bag with a star tip. So easy!
Breakfast recipes that can also double as a decadent afternoon snack are some of my favorite things to prepare. Today’s recipe is a delicious bar cookie infused with the rich flavor of brewed coffee, along with spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Paired with fresh fruit and a tall cup of coffee or tea, these are sure to be a hit with coffee and non-coffee drinkers alike!
