Shortbread Bar Cookies
Strawberry, raspberry, or cherry would be perfect for Valentine's Day!
And two recipes -- 1 cherry, 1 blueberry -- would be ideal for Independence Day gatherings.
- 3 c
- 3/4 c
- confectioners' sugar
- 1 1/2 c
- butter, softened
- 1 can(s)
- strawberry pie filling, 21 oz.**
(it doesn't say whether or not you should press the mixture, but I think I would)
Remove the pan to a cooling rack. Allow to cool 5 minutes.
Sprinkle the remaining crust mixture over the top of the fruit filling, as evenly as possible.
Gently press the top crust down with a metal spatula.
Remove from oven and cool completely to room temp.
Cover the pan and refrigerate the bars until thoroughly chilled.
Cut into brownie-sized pieces. If you wish, garnish with powdered sugar.
NOTE: If you choose a fruit filling with larger fruit pieces (like peach, cherry, apple, apricot, etc.) cut the fruit pieces into smaller bits, or pulse briefly in the food processor.
