Well, I’m gonna go set up the blow up pool and go cool off! I’m not ready for 90 degrees. What happened to Spring? There’s snow in Denver for Mother’s Day and a heatwave here. I’m starting to think that Mother Nature is going through menopause. Sheesh!

Strawberry Rhubarb Shortbread Bars

Preparation 00:30
Cook Time 00:20
Total Time 0:50
Serves 12     adjust servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 C Strawberry Rhubarb Curd
  • powdered sugar for dusting

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 8″ x 8″ pan parchment or non-stick foil with an overhang to lift it out.
  2. Combine the butter, flour, powdered sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix with a large spoon or your fingers until well combined. Let the warmth of your hand help to incorporate the butter with the flower and sugar. Press the dough evenly into your prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until set and just beginning to turn color.
  4. Add a cup to a cup and a half of the strawberry rhubarb curd and return the pan back to the oven and bake for another 18 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned on top and no longer jiggling in the center.
  5. Allow it to completely cool before serving. Remove the shortbread from the pan, sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into squares.
  6. Enjoy!
