Ingredients

CRUST

  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup (42g) confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick or 113g) cold butter, diced

FILLING

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup (250g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (31g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 1/2 cups sliced strawberries, (one 16 ounce container)

Instructions

CRUST

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, blend the flour, confectioners sugar, and butter. You can use a food processor or pastry cutter, but I prefer my hands. You want the butter to be no bigger than a pea size and the ingredients to be well incorporated.
  • Press into a 8 x 8 pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes. (The edges should just barely start to golden.)

FILLING

  • In a medium bowl, lightly beat two eggs. Add sugar, flour, and salt and mix until combined.
  • Gently stir in the sliced strawberries.
  • Pour mixture over the hot crust. Bake for another 35-40 minutes or until filling is set.
  • Allow bars to cool at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. You can serve them warm or refrigerate until ready to serve.
