Description

These white chocolate macadamia nut bars are a tradition in our household.


Ingredients

Scale

Crust:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped fine
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Jam:

  • 1/2 jar raspberry jam
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest

Streusel Topping:

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, cold
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 dish with parchment paper, and grease thoroughly.
  2. In a large bowl combine all of the crust ingredients (butter, brown sugar, flour, nuts, salt) until a dough forms. Then press into an even layer into the 8x8 dish. Bake for 30 minutes.
  3. While the crust bakes mix together the jam and zest. Then start on the streusel.
  4. For the streusel, cut the butter into cubes and toss into a large bowl. Add the brown sugar, flour, water, and salt. Mix together until it resembles coarse pebbles. Keep refrigerated until the crust is finished baking.
  5. Once the crust is finish spread the jam and lemon zest mixture in an even layer on top. Then Sprinkle as much streusel as you want on top of the jam.
  6. Bake bars for 30 more minutes.
  7. Microwave 1 cup of white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl for 25 seconds. Stir the semi-melted chips, and microwave again for 25 seconds. Stir the white chocolate until melted. If necessary microwave again for 10 seconds.
  8. Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the bars and enjoy!

Notes

Be careful not to burn your hand when you are spreading the jam on the hot crust (like I did...).
