In the beginning of summer the strawberries are bountiful and delicious in Florida. One of my favorite memories as a kid was going to pick strawberries with my family then coming home and making delicious pies and other treats. This is another great recipe that you can use with those strawberries that are a getting a little too overripe to eat fresh, but you dont want to throw them away! Theyre super easy and have a light and fluffy consistency. The streusel on top just adds a little extra something special!
