  • Let bars cool completely before cutting into bars, about 1 hour.

Notes

  • Makes about 24 bars.
  • I used salted butter in this recipe. If you choose to use unsalted butter, you may want to consider adding an additional pinch of salt to your crust.
  •  Feel free to use any type of strawberry spread or jam. Homemade jam would taste delicious in this recipe!
  • This recipe will also work with either fresh strawberries or jam used separately. The addition of jam does sweeten the strawberry bars. I didn't find them to be overly sweet, but I did not use overly sweet strawberries.
  • If you want to use frozen strawberries, let them completely thaw and pat them dry before making the recipe.
