Strawberry crisp is a light, flavorful spring dessert that’s perfect for your next dinner party or a weeknight treat. Topped with a crunchy, golden rolled oat topping with a sweet and juicy strawberry base, it will be your new favorite for parties this summer.

I’m a huge fruit crisp fan. In fact, my mother’s apple crisp is one of my favorite desserts to make for my friends. I love jazzing up my recipes though, and with strawberry season in full swing, what better time to make Strawberry crisp?

Strawberry crisp shows just how easy home cooking can be, and that simple recipes don’t have to be boring when you add small ingredient change-ups (like in our Strawberry Pretzel Salad). In this case, I’m adding almonds to a traditional rolled oats, flour, sugar and butter topping.

To prepare this recipe, mix the crisp topping ingredients together, slice your strawberries and layer the two together. Bake then serve with vanilla ice cream. It’s so quick and easy, you’ll make it again and again.
