A Word From The Cook

“Very light and summery especially if you use fresh seasonal berries. It’s ok to exchange the strawberries for raspberries, blueberries or any combination of berries.”


  • 1 Cup Gluten Free Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 Cup Butter (1 stick) softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 Cup Walnuts (chopped)
  • 3 Egg Whites (I often use the cartons of egg whites – then substitute 2 Tbsp for each egg)
  • 1 Cup White Sugar
  • 2 Cups Fresh Strawberries (cleaned, hulled and sliced)
  • 1 TBSP Lemon Juice
  • 1 1/2 Cup 35% Cream (Whipping Cream)

  2. Grease a 9 x 13 glass baking dish or a 9 inch round spring form baking pan.
  3. Combine the flour, brown sugar and butter with a pastry cutter until crumbly (don’t be afraid to use your hands if necessary)

  5. Pour the mixture into the greased pan and press evenly and smoothly in the pan.
  6. Bake in oven for 20 minutes, remove and let cool at room temperature.
