Slow Cooker Strawberry Crisp Recipe is easy and there's no dough to fuss with. Fresh strawberries and a few ingredients will make this one of your favorite strawberry desserts.
Well, I made it. You don't know how fast I had to hurry to take these pictures. There was a strawberry crisp thief just waiting in the wings. He masquerades as my husband on most days but his true nature comes out when there's a dessert being made.
This is what I think 'might' happen. If I tell him I'm making a pie, crumble, crisp, betty, or cobbler for the blog then he'll know better and calmly wait until my photos are done. But really he hangs around and sort of waits. Kind of.
It's like a Catch 22. If I don't say anything then I'm afraid he'll think I made the dessert for us to eat immediately and he'll take a piece as I go and answer the phone or something. I mean I really need to take the pictures.
I truly shouldn't complain because he's also really showing an interest. He's even started doing the dishes once in a while. And unloading the dishwasher! Some dishes may be stacked up in the corner because he doesn't know where they go but I'm okay with that.
What I guess I'm saying is it's all good. My husband is the greatest, he's there for me, and he likes my food. Especially desserts 😀
The slow cooker is one of my favorite appliances. It can cook up any variety of cuisines and even desserts. I don't know if people realize how great the crockpot is for desserts.
Besides this easy strawberry crisp I also have an Apple Pie Cake and a Rice Pudding on the blog. Just to name a couple. They don't take much time at all and you don't have to hover over the pot either.
Slow Cooker Tips for This Easy Strawberry Crisp Recipe
- Use a larger slow cooker so that the ingredients can be spread over a wider area.
- A programmable slow cooker would really make life easy. I don't have one yet.
- There is no need to place a liner inside the pot or oil the sides.
- Set a timer so that you can remove the lid halfway through cooking.
Do you use your slow cooker year round? I do. It just seems that when you use a slow cooker then your dinner isn't so rushed. Whether it's the main course, a side or dessert - life just becomes less harried.
It's also fun to set your crock pot out on a table in the shade in the summer time. It gives you the feeling of dining al fresco. Even if you bring the pot back indoors it still adds to that summery feeling.
What calls in the new season more than strawberries? Winter is winding down and fresh fruit is coming in. We're really lucky how the seasons are staggered a bit around the world so that we have longer seasons for fruits and vegetables. Strawberries are here!
