Jam Bars

We just love a quick little dessert that we can enjoy with a cup of afternoon tea or a casual dinner.  I love this recipe because it can be changed up with different kinds of jam to blend with the season.  I made this one today with my Strawberry Jalapeno Jam to give a little sweet and spicy flavor, this is a great combination.
