Strawberry Walnut Shortbread Bars

These shortbread bars are delicious and perfect with an afternoon cup of tea. Also, they make a wonderful option for any cookie swap or holiday gathering! The all-natural Dalby Farm Strawberry Preserves are loaded with chunks of fruit and really transform the recipe from good to great!
Another option for this recipe is to use Dalby Farm Blackberry Preserves. Last summer I went to a bridal shower and wanted something a little different so I substituted the Strawberry for Blackberry Preserves. I thought that the blackberry would be more of a summer berry; everyone raved about how delicious they were!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, lightly grease 9″ pan.

Base:

1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup of Dalby Farm Strawberry Preserves

Combine above ingredients until you have a fine meal. Pat mixture into pan; bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly golden. Cool and then spread 1/3 cup of Dalby Farm Strawberry Preserves on top.

Topping:

2 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp flour
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 cup of chopped walnuts

Beat eggs, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir in the remainder of the ingredients and spoon over jam, spreading lightly to edges. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is set. Cool in pan; once cool, cut into bars.
