Jelly filled Shortbread and Turning A Lack of Ingredients into A New Recipe!

 Hi everyone! Think you can’t make a delicious dessert treat in a pinch for a guest, a dinner party or bakesale? Think again!

Better yet, why don’t you make them for the Haiti fundraiser concert and Bakesale on Feb. 2nd that I am organizing?? Please email me for details at

With just a few ingredients, even you can transform  some pantry items into a delicacy. Fruit shortbread bars were the brainchild of my friend who wanted to make my marzipan bars …but ran out of marzipan!

Here they are:

Jam Shortbread Bars:

1 cup flour

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 stick softened butter

3/4 cup jam of your liking

1 cup chocolate chips


Cream butter, sugar and flour together until fully combined

Take 1/2 of dough and lay in a parchment paper lined bread loaf pan

Top evenly with the jam to cover entire surface of dough

Top with remaining dough to cover jam fully and press down

Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until top starts to turn golden brown

Remove from oven, add chocolate chips to top the dough evenly and place in oven for two minutes

Remove from oven, spread chips with a knife so it frost the top of the shortbread and let cool

When cool, slice through into pieces and place in the fridge until the chocolate hardens
