Lunch Box Chronicles: Day Thirty-Six (Berry Struesel - the SPELT RIGHT WAY)

This is one of the best recipes coming out of the Lunch Box Chronicles so far.

It is the brainchild of two Scarborough High School Seniors, Emma and Adam, no doubt destined for great things. They hatched the idea for trying their hand at the Lunch Box Chronicles a few weeks earlier. On Sunday morning, the two teens bounded off to Hannaford with a few bucks in their pockets and a mission to make something that would knock our socks off. They succeeded and several recipes emerged!

Olivia and Spencer looked on in anticipation of great treats to come, only to be gravely disappointed, when Emma and Adam decided to abscond with the feast they created and surprise a group of friends with some culinary delights. Luckily, they did leave a few morsels behind or chaos would have ensued!

Here is the first of three recipes to be posted by the newly anointed Lunch Box Chroniclers:



One Spelt Right Pizza Dough (Fully thawed and risen). See earlier pictures for details.

Struesel mixture
* 1/3 cup light brown sugar
* 1 and 1/3 VITA SPELT spelt flour
* 1/4 cup organic sugar
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1 cup of old fashioned oats
* 1 stick butter.

Melt butter and then pour in a mixing bowl. Mix together all the other ingredients with the butter. Use hands to make a crumble struesel.

Fruit Mixture
* 1 quart of strawberries (slice into quarters)
* 1 pint blueberries
* 4 TBL organic sugar

Wash fruit and mix well with sugar. Let sit.

Cut the pizza dough into 8 even sized balls. On a pizza peel or cutting board dusted with finely ground cornmeal or spelt flour, shape the dough balls to about 1/4 inch thickness (this is the kids' recipe, but mama would make it a little thinner). Make a thick edge around the thin base to hold in the juices (almost like a pie)

Place fruit mixture into a pizetta and sprinkle a good amount of the struesel mixture over the fruit.

Place on well oiled baking pan. Bake in 375 pre-heated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until looks done.

Let cool and enjoy!!!
