Strawberry Pie Crumb Bars

     Adapted from She Makes and Bakes

     9x13 glass pan
     3 cups all-purpose flour
     1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
     1 ts baking powder
     1/4 ts salt
     1/4 ts cinnamon
     1 cup cold butter
     2 large eggs
     1 ts vanilla extract
     1 Tb tapioca starch (or cornstarch)
     4 cups fresh strawberries, halved

     (If using frozen, do not thaw)

     Pre-heat oven to 375
     Line 9x13 pan with parchment paper.

     Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon tapioca starch. Add strawberries and gently mix, ensuring  

     that all the strawberries are coated with the mixture. Set aside.

     In a large bowl, sift together flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add the cold 

     butter using a pastry cutter or forks. The mixture will appear crumbly. Add the eggs and vanilla extract. 
     Press 2/3 of the mixture into the 9x13 pan. Distribute the strawberries over the crust. Sprinkle 
     remaining crumbs on top.

     Bake for 45-50 min. Allow to cool. Slice and serve!
