Tips for making strawberry crumble bars
- Spray your 13x9 baking dish or use parchment paper to prevent sticking.
- Press crust firmly into a baking dish with a spoon or your hands.
- I highly recommend using a food processor, it's just much easier to blend the crust. But my second choice would be a hand/stand mixer
- If your strawberries are a little more tart. You can add some extra sugar to sweeten them up. Just add 1 tablespoon at a time until desired sweetness.
- You can adapt this recipe to really any type of berries you have on hand.
- Using a potato masher can help break down the strawberries faster.
