Sunday Brunch: Strawberry-Peach Cookie Bars

I took advantage of the Victoria Day holiday today to make these. The recipe I adapted from was on Epicurious and they were cookies, but the reviews were negative based on them being cake-y and too liquid as batter. I adapted to make them vegan, cut down on the gooey-ness and put them in bar form.

1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar (Cane or vegan white)
1 cup Shortening
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 pint Strawberries, chopped
1 Peach, peeled and chopped 
3 cups Flour
1 tsp Salt
3/4 cup Chopped Nuts (pecans or walnuts)

Preheat oven to 350F.

Cream shortening and sugar in a large bowl. Stir in baking soda. Puree fruit in a food processor and stir in along with the flour, salt and nuts.

Flatten out the batter into a cake pan. I made it too thick, so aim for about 1/2 inch thickness. Bake until knife comes out clean!
