What is strawberry crisp?

Strawberry crisp is one of our very favorite desserts. It is so sweet, and makes us think of summer! It is originally an English pastry and can be made with any fruit.

A crisp is a dessert that consists of a fresh fruit base and a biscuit or crumble topping. Fruit crumbles, especially our strawberry crumble, are incredibly easy to make. They really just take a couple of components.

Technically, you could even eat it without baking! Although, take our word for it – this strawberry crisp is much better after some time in the oven.

When is strawberry season?

We love the late spring!! The warm weather just starts to set in, the days get longer, and strawberries come into their peak season in May! In fact, May 20th is National Pick Strawberries Day.

You can pick strawberries in most states up until the middle of July. This is when they will be their plumpest and sweetest. You can also grow strawberries in your backyard! Unlike a lot of fruit bushes, strawberries are very climate resistant so it is easy to raise them in most regions of the U.S!

How to make gluten-free strawberry crisp

The great part about this recipe is that you can easily make it gluten-free. Instead of using wheat flour, just swap out for almond flour or any other gluten free flour. You could even grind up oats into a powder in a blender and double up on the oats serving!

Other Fruits

We are obsessed with strawberries, but if you don’t have strawberries on hand, you an easily make this recipe with other fruits!

  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Peaches
  • Apples
  • Rhubarb (this is the most popular fruit to add to a strawberry crisp or cobbler)

Feel free to do a mix of fruit too! Strawberries and peaches go well together. Triple berry is a great choice as well.

Can you make Strawberry Crisp with frozen strawberries?

Fresh strawberries are amazing in this recipe, however, you can definitely use frozen. You will need to thaw the strawberries and drain the excess liquid. Add 2 tablespoons flour a long with the sugar and lemon juice, this will help thicken it up when baking.
