Ingredients

  • 2

    sticks margarine (1/2 lb) (I used butter.)

  • 1

    cup sugar (I used 1/2 cup stevia/sugar blend)

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 2

    cups flour

  • 1

    cup nuts (optional) (I used chopped walnuts)

  • 1

    Jar fruit pie filling

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray or grease a 9 x 13 - inch pan. 1. Beat margarine and sugar til smooth. (I heated my butter for 30 seconds in the microwave first to soften it a little.) 2. Add eggs and beat again. Add flour and nuts and mix until well blended. 3. Spread about 2/3 of the dough in the pan. (Anytime I have to do this I find it easier to do if I drop spoonfuls around the bottom of the pan and then spread the blobs out to cover the pan. I don't drop all of it, but then fill in the areas where I need dough to finish covering the pan.) 4. Spread the pie filling over the dough. (I cut up some of the strawberries so I would have a good cover of the filling.) Drop the remaining 1/3 of the dough over the pie filling in small blobs scattered around. 5. Bake 40 to 45 minutes. Cool pan on wire rack. 6. Sprinkle powdered sugar over top after baking. (I let it cool for about 5 minutes before I did this - wasn't sure since Miriam wasn't more specific. Paula prepared a glaze with powdered sugar, milk, and flavoring and drizzled over her cake. I considered doing this but decided to just sift a little powdered sugar over the bars and thereby use less sugar.) 7. Cut in bars to serve
