Eat Local

Is there anything better than shopping like this?
To me there's nothing better than a farmer's market on a cool, crisp, autumn, saturday morning....

Strawberry Crisp

A couple weeks ago strawberries were on sale...which doesn't totally make sense (complete opposite season, right)...but I went for it anyway & decided to do something a little different.
I've never had strawberry crisp (or even heard of it)...I've had almost any other fruit crisp, but not strawberry. Have you? If not---try it---it's really good :D

1 lb strawberries, quartered or halved
sugar to taste (depending on the sweetness of the berries)
1 tsp vanilla
1 TB all-purpose flour

1 c. oats
1/2 c. brown sugar
 2 heaping TB all-purpose flour
1/4 c. cold butter, cut into cubes

1. Mix together filling ingredients, pour into a 9 x 9 inch pan.

2. Mix dry topping ingredients.  Add butter and  use your fingers to work the butter in until the mixture resembles a crumble. 

3. Sprinkle oat mixture evenly over the top of the strawberry mixture.

3. Bake at 350 until top is browned and strawberries are bubbly, about 20 minutes.  Serve warm over vanilla ice cream.
