Crumbed Jam Bars made with Jam

The first time I had tried these cookies my I was at a family member’s house. This part of my family is from Russia, and they were making some of their favorite cookies from their home. I have always wanted to make these cookies again. The cookies are a wonderful way to feature preserved fruit, and they look beautiful.

Ingredients for Jam Crumble Bars

What makes these cookies unique is that the dough is divided, one part is refrigerated, and the other part is frozen before you make these cookies. For about 30 minutes. Then you will gently pat out the dough in a 9 by 13-inch pan. You will add the Smucker’s® Fruit and Honey to the dough, and sprinkle on the chopped almonds. The Smucker’s® Fruit and Honey come in multiple flavors, this time I made mine with the Strawberry flavor, but I believe the Berry flavor would also be delicious.

The other half of the dough is grated over the base; this is what makes the crumbly texture. You will then bake these cookies, and enjoy them when they come out of the oven.

    For such a delicious and “fancy” looking cookie, these seem pretty simple! I love the idea of grating the dough over the top for the crumbly finished look! These would be a great Christmas Cookie Swap addition!

        I got the ingredients for this cookie. Need to have it done by tonight. However I am stuck on the half pound of butter which is 8oz. The butter is marked by tablespoons. Not ozs. How many tablespoons make an oz? Do I put in one bar of butter or two in the bowl? Sure wish you had used table spoons or so much of a cup, NOT lbs. Not sure what to do now.
