Strawberry Yumminess!

Here is a recipe you must try from Tasty KitchenThis is so buttery good.  I used 1-1/2 times the ingredients because my cookie sheet is quite a bit bigger than the one mentioned in the recipe.  Next time I am going to try peaches and peach jam.  A big scoop of ice cream on top would make this even better.


Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and cut in chilled butter. 

Reserve 1 cup of the crumbly mixture and pat the rest evenly into your pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. 

Melt jelly in microwave and carefully spread on crust.  If you aren't careful the crust will get a little crumbly.

Sprinkle with chopped strawberries.

Sprinkle with reserved crumbles.

Bake for another 20 to 25 minutes, until it becomes a light golden brown.  Cool for 1 hour.

Drizzle with white chocolate.  Maybe you can do it prettier than I can...

Strawberry White Chocolate Streusel Bars
  • 2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1-1/2 cup all-purpose Flour
  • 3/4 cups white Sugar
  • 3/4 cups brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold Butter, Cut Into Small Pieces
  • 4 ounces, fluid Strawberry Jam
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Zest
  • 2 cups strawberries, chopped or sliced
  • 3 ounces fluid White Chocolate
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, both sugars, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add the chopped up cold butter and work it into the dry ingredients with your fingers or a pastry blender until the mixture looks like small crumbles. Reserve 1 cup of this mixture.   Dump the remaining crumb mixture into an ungreased 15” x 10” pan (jellyroll pan) and press it into an even crust.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 12-13 minutes or until it is firm to touch. Do not brown.  Remove pan from oven. Warm the jam in the microwave for 30 seconds and then stir in the lemon zest. Drizzle the warm jam over the warm crust. Spread the chopped strawberries over the crust. Sprinkle on the reserved cup of crumb mixture.  Return pan to 350 degree F oven and bake for another 20-25 minutes or until the crumbs on top are lightly browned. Then remove it from the oven and let the pan cool for 1 hour.  Melt the white chocolate in microwave, following directions on package. Drizzle melted chocolate in thin lines over the streusel top. Cut into bars.
