STRAWBERRY CRUMBLE BARS

Strawberry Crumble Bars

I know I have already said this, but how hard is it to get adjusted to living with inverted seasons??  It is so weird to think of Christmas as a summer holiday or Easter as an autumn holiday…  in the same way, April reminds me of spring, sunshine and… strawberries.  So, even though it is autumn down here (though a very “mild” one), today I want to share with you a spring time recipe: Strawberry Crumble Bars.  Obviously, this is a spring time dessert because it is made with strawberries, but I it calls out for spring as it is also perfect for picnics in the sun!  Bars are very easy to carry around and being already cut, they make the perfect end for an outdoor meal, or snack to have on the go.  Besides, these bars are so easy to make and they are utterly delicious!  I love the crumble topping… it just adds that extra crunch!  Enjoy!

      Hi Gloria… to tell you the truth, I do not know… I have never tried. You could however make the 2 doughs and freeze them… and then assemble them on the day you need to bake the bars. It would save you more than half of the time.
