  • 9-inch frozen pie crust (or one homemade pie crust)

Filling

  • 1 pound strawberries, washed then hulled & chopped
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • ½ cup oats
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • Pinch salt

Directions for Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Poke the pie crust with a fork and bake for 10 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, stir together all the filling ingredients. Set aside.
  3. Put all the topping ingredients into another bowl.
