LRFM Vendor Spotlight
Jennie Mae's Baked Goods of Arlington, Virginia

Sometimes only a cookie can make the day complete!  Jennie Mae's baked goods are are fresh as they come, made locally right in Arlington Forest.  Try a Kahlua cookie (look for the sprinkles), a homemade baked donut (yum!), or the fantastic chocolate-chip pumpkin bread (by the slice or by the mini-loaf).  Muffiins, brownies, and more cookies round out the offerings, vegan and gluten-free options abound, and there are samples, always.  As Jennie says, happiness is homemade!

  • 8 cups assorted berries
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
Struesel Topping
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar

  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon

Recipe from

Grease a 9- by 13-inch baking dish. Preheat oven to 350°F.

In large bowl, mix together fruit, sugar, lemon zest, and juice.

Place fruit mixture in the baking dish.

In a separate bowl, combine all of the streusel ingredients. Use your fingertips to blend mixture together. Sprinkle the mixture over fruit.

Bake for 45 minutes or until topping is golden brown and fruit is bubbling.

Serve with ice cream or whipped cream, as desired.

Technique tip: Reduce the amount of sugar in the filling if your berries are very sweet. Make streusel ahead of time and put in zip-lock bag in freezer. It's OK if the streusel is frozen when placed on berries before baking.
