Simple Fruit Crisp Recipe

As I have gotten older I have come to so appreciate simple, from scratch dessert recipes and this old fashioned strawberry fruit crisp is one of them.  The most time consuming part of this recipe is cutting up your strawberries.  After that it takes just a few minutes to put together.

This quick strawberry crisp is simply cut up strawberries and sugar, which make a yummy strawberry filling.  The strawberry filling is then topped with a brown sugar cinnamon crumble topping that is golden brown when you pull it out of the oven.

Friends, you can’t get anymore simple than that without cheating.

Fruit Crisp Without Oats

Most of the strawberry crisp recipes I researched were strawberry crisp with oats.  This recipe however, has an oatless topping.  As I say in my apple crisp post, I am so in love with the combination of flour, brown sugar and butter (I call that nectar of the gods), why would I want to add oats to perfection.  

Seriously, the topping on this crisp is amazing.  There’s a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon added to the flour, brown sugar and butter topping that makes it even better, if that’s possible.  This cinnamon topping makes a delicious melody with the sweet strawberry filling.

Tips To Make This Recipe For Strawberry Crisp

  • You can use fresh or frozen strawberries.
  • If you are using frozen strawberries, you may need to use 3.5 to 4 tablespoons of cornstarch.  This will help absorb the excess water that comes from the frozen strawberries.
  • If you like a strawberry crisp that’s overflowing with strawberries, use 7 or more cups of strawberries.
  • You can use 1 cup of granulated sugar or 1 cup of brown sugar instead of 1/2 cup of each.
  • Your butter for the topping should be chilled.  I actually set mine out for a bit before baking, so it was not super cold. 
  • Do not use soft butter or melted butter.
  • I combined my topping ingredients in a food processor. You can also use a pastry cutter or your hands.  The mixture will be crumbly and sandy.

Can You Use Frozen Strawberries In Crisp

Yes, frozen strawberries are just fine for this strawberry crisp.  Fresh strawberries are preferred, but using frozen strawberries will still produce a strawberry masterpiece. 

When using frozen strawberries you will want to add a little extra cornstarch. You can use 1/2 tablespoon to 1 tablespoon to the already 3 tablespoons the recipes calls for.  This will help absorb the excess water that comes from the frozen strawberries.

How To Serve Strawberry Crisp

This strawberry crisp makes a delicious hot strawberry dessert, especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream or both.  You can also get a little edgy and try it with some blueberries, blackberries or chocolate chips.

Also, please note, this crisp is also very scrumptious served cold. So if it starts calling your name from the fridge in the middle of the night with that seductive Barry White voice, give in, run to the fridge and indulge

How To Store Strawberry Crisp

Strawberry crisp will keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. Let the crisp cool to room temperature.  Cover with plastic wrap and aluminum foil or transfer to an airtight container

Can You Freeze Strawberry Crisp

You can freeze strawberry crisp, but once thawed it might be more like strawberry limp.  It’s still really good; however, some of the crispiness is gone.  If you freeze it, warm it in the oven first.  That will help get some of the firmness back.  If you can’t wait for it to heat up in the oven, then heat it in the microwave and enjoy some strawberry limp (no shame).
