RECIPE: Chocolate Strawberry Jam Bars with Streusel
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 cups flour
2 cups (12 oz) chocolate chips/morsels (or white chocolate chips, like I did)
1 jar (10 oz) strawberry jam
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 stick butter
1 cup powered sugar
1 tbl. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease 13x9 inch pan.
2. Bars: Beat butter and sugar in large mixer bowl until fluffy. Beat in egg. Beat in flour. Stir in 1 cup morsels. Spread mixture in prepared pan. Spread jam evenly over mixture, leaving a 1/2 inch border.
3. Streusel: Combine flour and sugar in medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or whisk until mixture in crumbly (Note: don't stir the whisk around like usual; pump it up and down instead). Stir in remaining morsels. Sprinkle evenly over preserves.
4. Bake for 40-45 minutes until top is golden. Cool in pan on wire rack. Mix together ingredients for icing, then drizzle over bars.
