Sunday Brunch: Strawberry-Peach Cookie Bars
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!
