Strawberry season continues! Strawberry crisp by Sally’s Baking Addiction is a classic strawberry dessert you don’t want to miss out on. It’s got a juicy strawberry filling with a nice vanilla kick and rounded out by a crunchy streusel topping.
Let’s talk crisp vs. cobbler. I like fruit cobbler but I love crisp thanks to the extra texture you get from the streusel topping. If I have a choice of any baked good where a streusel topping is an option, I will hands down choose the one with the crumbly, oat, nutty topping. I also like it because it seems to add another depth of flavor onto something already so tasty.
The process is simple and you’re sure to have a family favorite in no time using your in-season strawberries. If you’ve already used up all your strawberries, try it with other fruits such as blueberries, a berry medley, or apples. You don’t have to use almonds in the streusel topping but they do add an even further layer of texture and nutty flavor to the crisp. I used almonds because we have plenty in the pantry and tend to use them the least but walnuts, pecans, or cashews would be a good substitute as well.

Strawberry CrispCourse: DessertDifficulty: Easy
2.5 cups (450g) chopped strawberries
⅛ cup (16g) all purpose flour
¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
⅛ teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoons vanilla extract
Seeds scraped from ¼ vanilla bean
- Streusel Topping
⅓ cup (67g) light brown sugar
⅓ cup (43g) all purpose flour
⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
⅛ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons (43g) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
⅓ cup (33g) old-fashioned rolled or quick oats
¼ cup (28g) sliced almonds
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease an 8-inch baking dish and set aside.
- Make the filling: Combine chopped strawberries with the flour, sugar, salt, vanilla extract, and vanilla bean seeds in a large bowl. Toss gently until combined. Spoon into the prepared baking dish.
- Make the topping: Whisk the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt together. Make sure to get out all the brown sugar lumps. Using a pastry cutter, your hands, or a fork, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse pea-sized crumbs. Mix in the oats, then evenly sprinkle topping over strawberries. Sprinkle almonds evenly over top, if using.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes until the topping is golden brown and the strawberry juices are bubbling around the edges. Remove from the oven, place on a wire rack, and allow to cool slightly before serving. Cover leftovers and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
- You can use frozen chopped strawberries as well, without thawing.
- Freezing Instructions – Baked crisp freezes for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge, then warm in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20 minutes or until heated through. You can also prepare through step 3 and freeze for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw overnight in the fridge, then continue with step 4.
- Try this with other fruits such as blueberries, apples, berry mixture, etc.
