Strawberry Streussel


This weekend called for baking session with friends. One made this amazing Oreo cookie dough recipe. You crush Oreos and mix with cream cheese, round the mixture into balls, coat with melted chocolate and refrigerate. For this recipe, she used mint-chocolate Oreos. They were delicious. I wish I had taken a picture!

I chose to make a strawberry streussel; something like dessert and also like breakfast! For this recipe, I used flour, butter, sugar, and an egg for the top and bottom layer. I also added shaved almonds to the dough which added crunch and a nutty flavor.

Once you create this mix, you coat a 9x13in pan with 2/3 of the dough. Then, you add about a cup of jelly/jam/preserves of your choosing; for this recipe, I chose Strawberry jam and most of the chunks of strawberry evened out with the heat of the oven. Once the middle layer was set, I added the rest of the dough to the top and the baked in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. After taking it out, I sprinkled powdered sugar over the top.

It’s important to let this dish cool a bit, because the fruit is SUPER hot–I didn’t wait, and suffered a burnt tongue for the next day. Here’s a picture of the final product…with a few pieces missing 🙂

All in all, the dish lasted about a day with people eating pieces throughout.
