Strawberry Sunday

After a sweet morning at the Sens Chocolate Salon http://cookinginsens.wordpress.com/2012/03/18/chocolate-salon-sens-france-2012/, I decided to do something with the fabulous Spanish strawberries I found in the market.  We were wondering if you could make a crumble with strawberries.  Well, yes you can.

These berries were so sweet!  As I was making the crumbles, I just knew M. Parret would want some.  I sent over two little pots and didn’t mention Spain.

And here is where “shopping large” really pays off;  we had enough strawberries to also make milkshakes :)

Strawberry Crumble

1 lb strawberries, cut into chunks

1/4 cup sliced almonds

1/4 cup sugar

4 tbsp vanilla

1/2 cup flour

3 tbsp + 1 tsp brown sugar

1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped

4 tbsp cold butter

Mix the strawberries with the almonds, sugar and vanilla.  Set aside for about 15 minutes, then divide between 6 ramekins.   Mix the flour, brown sugar and pecans together.   Cut in the cold butter with a pastry cutter (I finally found mine) until it forms a coarse meal, then sprinkle on top of the strawberries.  Bake the ramekins on a cookie sheet at 350 F for about 2o minutes.  Top with whipped cream if you like.

Strawberry Milkshakes

1/2 lb strawberries, sliced

2 tbsp sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 pint vanilla ice cream

1/2 cup milk

Combine the strawberries, sugar and vanilla in a bowl.  Set aside for about 15 minutes, then blend with the ice cream and milk until smooth.  Makes two large.
