INGREDIENTS

 

FOR THE BASE

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (1-1/2 sticks) chilled and cut into small pieces
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1-1/2 jars of your favorite Galena Canning Company Jam, Preserve or Fruit Butter

FOR THE CRUMBLE TOPPING

  • 1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, lightly-packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamon (optional)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (not quick cooking)
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (1-1/2 sticks), chilled and cut into small pieces
  • powdered sugar for dusting (optional)

DIRECTIONS

 

Preheat oven to 375F with rack in the middle position. Line a 13x9x2 inch baking pan with parchment paper, with 2 inch overhang on the long sides.Lightly coat parchment with cooking spray.

 

MAKE THE BASE

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, kosher salt and baking powder. Using a pastry blender, a fork or two knives, cut butter into the flour mixture until it appears sandy and forms fine crumbs.
  2. In a small measuring cup, stir together milk and almond extract. Pour over the flour mixture and combine until moistened throughout. Mixture will remain crumbly. For a tender shortbread base, don’t overwork dough.
  3. Press dough into the prepared baking pan in an even layer. Bake 12-15 minutes, until center is just set and edges are just beginning to turn light brown. Remove from oven to assemble bars and leave the oven on.

MAKE THE CRUMBLE TOPPING

  1. While the base is baking, whisk together flour, light brown and granulated sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, cardamon (if using) and oats. Using the same process as you did for the base, cut butter into the flour mixture until crumbly.

ASSEMBLE THE BARS

  1. Spread jam, preserves or fruit butter over hot base layer. Sprinkle crumble topping in an even layer over am, preserves or fruit butter (the crumble layer will be thick)
  2. Return to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until crumble topping is light golden brown. Let stand at room temperature in the baking pan until completely cooled. Dust with powdered sugar, slice into bars and serve.
