Strawberry Shortbread

Use any kind of jam if strawberry isn’t your favorite to make these bars. They are so good.

2-1/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnuts
1 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
1 cup strawberry preserves

Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper. Grease the parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, salt and walnuts.
Then stir in butter and egg until mixture is crumbly. Set aside 2 cups of this mixture and put the remaining mixture into the bottom of the pan. Press gently to form a 9″ square layer.

Spread the preserves over the shorbread.

Sprinkle the remaining crumbs over the top.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Cut into small bars.
