Jam Squares

DSC02128 - Copy 2

Wooh! I'm finally back, after going through some major laptop issues!! Haven't been online for days, will catch up on your blogs tomorrow!! :$ But the good thing about a spoilt laptop is, I ve lotss of time to bake :) I made so many things!! One of those are these delicious jam squares, to use up all the excess jam I were leftover from these cookies!

And boy, was I glad I made them! So easy, and yet so delicious! My favorite part was where the jam oozed out, and caramelised, it tasted soo good!! Really mouth-watering! The squares were over before I knew it, with my diet-conscious friends eating it up without a care in the world :P! Try these when you don't really feel like baking anything elaborate, and are looking for a quick fix for a craving! Though ofcourse, don't go by me, you can totally make this for company too!!!

Jam squares
Adapted from Allrecipes

6 oz [170 g] raspberry jam - Use whatever you have, I used about 4 oz. of raspberry, and 2 oz. of pineapple! I preferred the pineapple!
1 c [120 g] chopped walnuts
2 1/4 [285 g] flour
1 c [245 g] sugar
1 c [225 g / 2 sticks] butter - I used 3/4 cup, or 1 and 1/2 stick


  1. Preheat oven to 180 C [350 F]. Grease a 9x11 pan, or divide into 2 smaller pans for different fillings.
  2. Let butter come to room temperature, and then combine together all ingredients except the jam.
  3. Press 3/4 of the mixture into the pan, so that it forms a kind of crust.
  4. This is where you can go crazy. Add whatever jam, filling etc you want to use, just make sure to leave an 1/2 inch border along the sides.
  5. Sprinkle the rest of the mixture on top.
  6. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
  7. Cool, and then cut into bars!
