  • 1
    1/2 pound Butter (room temperature)
    1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar (packed)
    1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
    1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    1/2 teaspoon Salt

  • 4
    3/4 cup Strawberry Jam
    1 cup Strawberries (sliced)
    Zest and juice of 2 Lemons
    Confectioners Sugar to Dust

    Bake the crust until set and golden around the edges, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Spread the strawberry mixture over the crust, and crumble the reserved shortbread dough over top. Return the pan to the oven and bake until the topping is firm and golden brown, about 45-50 minutes. Dust with confectioners sugar, and allow to cool before slicing and serving.
