  1. Make the crumble topping: In a mixer fitted with paddle attachment, combine flour, sugars, cinnamon, and ginger. Add cubed butter slowly on low speed ¼-cup at a time. Combine until mix darkens slightly in color and begins to clump together.
  2. Make the filling: In a large mixing bowl, toss strawberries with orange juice, sugar, and basil.
  3. Spoon filling into crusts and sprinkle with crumb topping. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes, turn, and bake 8 to 10 minutes more until golden brown
