Another one of my accounting cohorts, Anna, decided to try her hand at baking for us. She said that this was a cake recipe, but when she brought it into work, she had cut the pieces up into wonderful little bars. Here's her recipe, taken from her grandmother's recipe (I think):
--1 cup Sugar
--1 cup Butter, softened (2 sticks)
--Jam or Preserves
(or Raisins, Nuts, Lemon -- Anna used Apricot Jam)
Beat together eggs and sugar. Add butter. Add enough flour to make into a dough. Separate dough in half. Chill half the dough. Spread the other half into the bottom of a pyrex dish. Spread a layer of preserves over the top. Crumble the chilled half of the dough on top. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
