Strawberry Crumble

Strawberry Crumble, originally uploaded by mysterybridgers.

I am usually not a fan of cooking strawberries, but this dessert actually turned out really well. Sorry about the blurry picture--I was standing on my tiptoes in order to get a view of the strawberries. The recipe is from a cookbook called Luscious Berry Desserts (another sort floor books find). I had 3 baskets of very tasty strawberries from the farmer's market and had to find a use for them (buy 2 baskets, get one free is too tempting).

The recipe is pretty easy--it mostly consisted of mixed sliced berries with breadcrumbs, vanilla, a little bit of sugar, a little bit of butter, hazelnuts, and some salt and then baking in the oven for about 20 minutes. The strawberries actually did not taste cooked and the full strawberry flavor came out. We served this with a little bit of vanilla ice cream and it was delicious.
