  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • vanilla ice cream, for serving
  • fresh mint, for serving


Preheat oven to 200°C.

Toss strawberries with sugar, cornstarch and salt in a 9 x 9 baking dish.

Roast strawberries for 30-40 minutes, until berries burst and start bubbling.

Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Evenly sprinkle the shortbread crumbles and cinnamon on top of the roasted strawberries.

Spoon crumble into small bowls. Top each serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a mint sprig for garnish.

Serve immediately.
