Oat-Fashioned Strawberry Dessert

 Oat-Fashioned Strawberry Dessert
Meet the Cook: Thanks to this dessert, our house is a popular place in summertime. I make it for family get-togethers, picnics and potlucks, too. It's a treat on a breakfast or brunch buffet also. We like it best with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. We're the parents of a grown son. -Linda Forrest, Belleville, Ontario
