A versatile recipe that does double duty as a scrumptious strawberry crumble dessert or cut them into bars as fantastic cookie treats.
What’s better than a great crumble recipe? A crumble recipe that can also be cut into cookie bars too!
This very simple recipe does double duty. It is a great simple crumble recipe that makes a terrific dessert on its own or with a scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream plus any leftovers can be served cold, cut onto bar cookies for the kid’s lunchboxes. I can’t guarantee the leftovers though, so to be safe, make two batches! 😉

- 1 1/2 cups cold butter cut in cubes
- 2 tsp vanilla extract or the seeds of one vanilla pod
- 3 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 1/2 cups strawberry jam
Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking pan and line with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a food processor mix together the flour, sugar and baking powder.
Pulse in the cold butter and vanilla until crumbly.
If you don't have a food processor you can simply rub the butter through the dry ingredients with your hands, this is a pretty simple, fail-safe recipe.
Press half of the crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan, then spread on the strawberry jam. Use homemade or a good quality, whole fruit jam and not a pectin based, jelly type jam
Press the remaining crumb mixture together in your hands and break off small pieces, scattering them evenly over the jam layer.
Bake for 40-50 minutes or until light golden brown on top.
Serve warm with ice cream or chill and cut in bars.
