Strawberry Margarita Bars

I wanted to make something for the office for Cinco de Mayo.  One of my co-workers (in jest) suggested strawberry margaritas.  Strawberry Margarita Bars seemed like a better option, given our company's zero tolerance alcohol policy.

Strawberry Margarita Bars


  • 13 ounces (26 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup Rose's Lime Juice
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped, toasted walnuts
  • 2 cups strawberry preserves

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Butter a 9 by 13-inch pan. In an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, then add 1/2 cup of Rose's Lime Juice. Add the flour and mix just enough to incorporate. Add the nuts and mix a little longer until just blended.

Press about two-thirds of the mixture into the prepared pan.

Spread 1/4 cup of Rose's Lime Juice onto the dough.

Spread with the strawberry preserves.

Crumble the remaining dough on top.

Bake for about 1 hour, until the top is lightly browned.

Let the bars cool before cutting.

Delicious!  These bars have a lovely strawberry taste, with a light lime accent.

Bake a batch of these today.  You can have several... and you don't need to worry about sobriety checkpoints.
