Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup strawberry jam

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9×9 pan with aluminum foil and coat with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, and salt. Add in the egg, butter, and vanilla and combine with a pastry cutter, or your hands until the dough comes together.
  3. Divide the dough in half and press one half into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  4. Spread the strawberry jam on top. Crumble the remaining dough onto the top of the jam.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes until lightly browned.

Glaze

  1. Whisk powdered sugar and cream together and drizzle on top.

Notes:

I put the glaze in a small zip-top bag and snip off the corner, to make for easy icing.
