1⁄2cup butter (melted)
1egg (lightly beaten)
1cup all-purpose flour
2teaspoons baking powder
1cup chopped toasted walnuts (optional)
2quarts strawberries (capped and washed ~ cut large berries in half)
4ounces low-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel preferred, cut into small pieces)
plain Greek yogurt (optional) or vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pour melted butter into a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish.
In a small bowl, mix together the egg, milk, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pour directly over the butter in the baking dish, but do not stir.
Add the strawberries, arranging in a single layer as much as possible.
Sprinkle cream cheese pieces and optional walnuts over strawberries.
Place in preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes, or until top is golden brown and edges are bubbling. (Crust rises up and around the fruit, but fruit will still peek out of top.).
Serve hot out of the oven with choice of topping, if desired.
