Ingredients

Crust

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs (yolks only)

Topping

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs (whites only)

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup strawberry preserves

1/4 cup sliced almonds

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour and 1/2 cup sugar in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in egg yolks until well mixed. Press onto bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

  3. STEP 3

    Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in bowl at high speed until foamy. Continue beating, gradually adding powdered sugar, until glossy and stiff peaks form.

  4. STEP 4

    Spread preserves over hot, partially baked crust. Spread egg white mixture over preserves; sprinkle with almonds. Continue baking 22-27 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely. Cut into bars with sharp, wet knife.
