Cranberry and White Chocolate Streusel Bars
1 cup butter, softened and cut into bits
2 cups flour
2/3 cup oats
½ cup sugar
2 egg yolks
Cranberry filling from 8 oz fresh cranberries (recipe below)
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
8 oz (2 ½ cups) fresh cranberries
2/3 cup sugar
3 tbsp water
Preheat over to 350F. Butter a 7×11 inch pan.
Prepare the cranberry filling first. In a medium sized saucepan, place all the ingredients. Then, over medium-high heat, cook the ingredients until boiling. Continue to boil the filling until it becomes thick and syrup, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool while you make the shortbread.
After filling is done. In a food processor, mix flour, oats and sugar 10 seconds. Add 1 cup butter; mix until mixture forms a ball. Set aside ½ cup of mixture. Mix in yolks.
Press yolk mixture into pay. Spread with cranberry filling. Sprinkle walnuts and chocolate chips, then press into dough. Form pea-sizes crumbs with reserved dough mixture, sprinkle over top.
Bake at 350F until topping is pale gold, about 45 minutes. Cool on rack and cut into 24 bars.
