Sharing is caring!

Summer is all about strawberries and this Strawberry Skillet Crisp is so yummy!

Strawberries are so versatile. I love to make sauces for chicken and pork using strawberries as a base. I love to put sliced strawberries into fresh salads. They are also great on their own or dipped in a little sugar or whipped cream.

Yet there are few dishes that can satisfy the senses quite like my Strawberry Skillet Crisp. The berries are cooked to a warm, gooey perfection and the topping is sweet, crunchy and buttery. It’s like being wrapped in a hug by your grandmother with a single mouthful.

Best of all, this dessert cooks up great in a cast iron skillet and nothing says home cooking quite like a cast iron skillet.

This recipe is written for a large cast iron skillet but you could easily cook this in 6 mini skillets for super cute individual desserts.
