Strawberry Streusel Bars

READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer beat the sugar and margarine until smooth and creamy.
  • Beat in the tofu and mix again until well mixed.
  • Add the flour and beat into the sugar mixture. If your mixer can't handle the job, just mix the rest of the flour until combined.
  • Stir in the pecans.
  • Reserve 1 cup of the pecan mixture.
  • Press the rest of the pecan mixture into a 9x9x2-inch baking dish.
  • Spread the strawberry preserves on top of the pecan mixture leaving a one half inch border with no filling from the edge of the baking pan.
  • Put your reserved pecan mixture on top of the strawberry preserves and press lightly.
  • Bake 45 minutes.
  • Once done remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Top with powdered sugar or powdered sugar glaze.
  • If you choose the glaze stir the milk and vanilla into the powdered sugar and beat until creamy. If this isn't liquid enough add more milk until it is at the consistency you like.
  • With a spoon, drizzle the glaze over the cooled bars.
  • Bon Appetit.
