These bars were too sweet and "doughy" tasting. They were very rich, so I served in tiny squares. Husband usually likes most things I bake; not these. :(

These bars are quick and easy to make, have a buttery-rich shortbread base, a sweet and moist strawberry filling, and a drizzle of almond-flavored icing. A 5-star recipe in this house and a keeper for sure. Thanks, dthomas, for a delicious new dessert.
