A great way to use up jams and jellies that are crowding your fridge! I've used a mixture of jams and I've also used a single jelly....it's all good! The jam in the picture was Pear Jam. Our sugar cookie mix makes this recipe super simple.

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.
  2. Cut the cold butter into large dices. Place the cookie mix and the butter into a food processor with the water. Pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Remove 1 1/2 cups of this mixture and set aside.
  3. Pour remaining crumb mixture into the baking dish and evenly spread it out. Using the bottom of a measuring cup, press the mixture down to form the bottom crust.
  4. Spread the jam over the bottom crust evenly.
  5. Sprinkle the reserved crumb mixture evenly over the jam.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares and eating.
