Berry Crumble Bars Recipe


I love crumble or streusel toppings and the bigger the crumbles, the happier I am and it’s even better when the crust and crumble topping are one in the same. One less step, and one less bowl to wash, and a big timesaver and that’s the case here. It’s an easy, no-mixer recipe that takes just minutes to make. I generally bake with frozen fruit but of course you can use fresh. I used a combo of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Baking time will vary based on if your berries are fresh, frozen, and how juicy they are. Between the buttery firm crust, juicy berries, sandy crumbles, and crunchy walnuts, there are so many wonderful textures and flavors in every thick bite. The bars taste fancy enough to serve at a special event, luncheon, or brunch, yet are homey and comforting. You can never have too many recipes for all the berries that spring and summer brings.

YIELD: ONE 8X8 PAN, 9 TO 12 GENEROUS SQUARES

INGREDIENTS:

Crust and Crumble Topping
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
pinch salt, optional and to taste
1/4 cup diced Fisher walnuts

Berry Layer
2 cups mixed berries (fresh or frozen; I used frozen strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.)
1/3 cup granulated sugar (or 1/2 cup if berries are sour)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray; set aside. Lining the pan will really help with cleanup and is recommended.
  2. Crust and Crumble Topping – In a large, microwave-safe bowl melt the butter, about 1 minute on high power.
  3. Add the sugars and whisk to combine.
  4. And the flour, optional salt, and stir to combine. Mixture will be very dry and sandy with some larger, well-formed crumble pieces.
  5. Set a heaping 3/4 cup crumble mixture aside.
  6. Transfer remaining mixture to prepared pan, and using a spatula or your fingers, hard-pack the mixture to create an even, smooth, flat crust; set aside.
  7. Berry Layer – In a separate medium bowl, add all filling ingredients and toss to combine.
