greek yogurt 52 ways: #17 shortbread strawberry crumble

Sometimes when a dessert is too good, I can't form coherent sentences. I'm full of mmm's, and yum's, and gimme's, and wide eyes, and heart eyes. I can't utter a word with this recipe. It's just... so good.

I came across this recipe on Tracy's blog Shutterbean. Tracy has introduced some I've-gone-mute dishes to my house before- first with that French bread breakfast pizza, then with that tuna sandwich, then with breakfast nachos (mmm!), and now this: shortbread strawberry crumble. I have nothing else to offer for this recipe other than: WIDE EYES.

For this dessert, start by preheating your oven to 400*. (FYI, I cut Tracy's recipe in half). Quarter 1 lb of strawberries and toss with 1/4 c of sugar, 1/2 tbsp of cornstarch, and 1/4 tsp of salt. Transfer to an 8x8" oven safe dish. Roast the strawberries for 35 min. or so.

Allow the strawberries to cool for a few minutes, then top with about 8 crumbled, shortbread cookies (mine had pecans in them, as well).

Serve with vanilla, Greek yogurt:

and a sprig of mint if you'd like:

I like.

Though I'd much rather have this dessert with ice cream (real talk), I would also like to rid myself of these dimples on my thighs (I don't want to be crude and spell out where else I'd rather not see dimples. ;) Little tweaks here and there, and I'm thinking I'll get to my weight loss goals some day... And honestly? I don't feel deprived without the ice cream- look at that crumble! ;)
