Strawberry Bars

Pin It
Check out all of these cool fruit tools I received from OXO!
We eat a lot of fresh fruit around here, so I was super excited when this package arrived!

I decided to try out the OXO Strawberry Huller for the strawberry bars I made for my girl's night.
I'll have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about how well this little tool would actually work, but it was amazing! See how well it removes the stem and leaves all at once!
I will definitely use this little gadget ALOT this summer!
Love OXO!!

Strawberry bars just scream summer.
Cookie crust, sweetened cream cheese and strawberries - yum!

Strawberry Bars

1 pouch Sugar Cookie Mix (I used Betty Crocker)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
3/4 lb. sliced fresh strawberries
1/3 cup strawberry jam

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 x 13 bake dish with cooking spray.
Make sugar cookie dough according to package directions with 1/2 cup softened butter and 1 egg.
Press cookie dough into prepared pan evenly.  Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until edges are golden brown.  Cool completely.

In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, vanilla extract, sugar and lemon juice.
Spread on cooled crust.  Place sliced strawberries over cream cheese.  Microwave strawberry jam for 20-30 seconds.  Brush melted jam onto strawberry slices.  Refrigerate until set, at least one hour.
Store leftovers in the fridge.


  1. Just went strawberry picking today so I think I'll give these a try! Perfect timing!

  2. Wow! These look & sound fantastic. I didn't go picking this year :( Hopefully I can get my hands on some sweet berries soon so I can give these a try.

  3. Making strawberry jam tonight. I'll will most certainly leave enough to make this!
