Makes:36 bars



2 cups 500 mL butter, softened
1 cup 250 mL sugar
3 1/4 cups 800 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup 125 mL cornstarch


1 1/2 cups 375 mL shortbread dough
2 cups 500 mL Smucker’s® Pure Strawberry Jam
½ cup 125 mL sliced almonds (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9” x 13” (23 cm x 33 cm) baking dish and line with parchment paper, overlapping 2 sides for easy removal.
  2. SHORTBREAD: Beat butter in a large bowl of an electric mixer on medium-high speed until very light in texture about 5 minutes. Add sugar and continue beating until sugar is completely combined, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Combine flour and cornstarch in a separate medium bowl. Add to butter mixture on low speed until well combined.  Set aside 1 ½ cups (375 mL) of mixture. Press remaining dough on bottom of prepared baking dish. Spread jam over base.
  4. TOPPING: Add almonds to remaining dough and crumble over jam.
  5. Bake in preheated oven 60 - 65 minutes until lightly golden and jam is bubbling. Cool in pan on wire cooling rack.


  • Replace strawberry jam with your family’s favourite flavour or use any flavour jam you have on hand.
