Extended Life for: Strawberries...via Strawberry Jam
I previously posted a recipe for Freezer Strawberry Jam. Here, that jam becomes the star of these easy to make bars.
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. honey
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. ground allspice
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
2/3 cup strawberry jam
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and honey. Combine flour, baking soda and spices gradually to the creamed mixture. Divide dough in half; spread half into lightly greased 9x9 baking pan. Spread with jam. Drop remaining dough by teaspoonfuls over jam. Sprinkle with walnuts if desired. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars and share with strawberry loving friends!
