Baked Rice Bars 101

Just like you do when making cookies, you need to start these bars by mixing together the jam, butter, sugar, eggs and lemon until smooth. In another bowl, you’ll need to sift the dry ingredients together. Sifting is important as it will help the entire mix to blend more easily without any lumps of flour.

After the rice is added to the dry mixture, you will need to slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet mix. Add a little at a time, stirring, until everything is combined. Once you have your mix, fold in the fresh strawberries and nuts.
