DIRECTIONS

  • In a food processor, add 2 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 egg yolks, and 1/2 lb. butter (2 sticks, cut up into pieces).
  • Pulse until mixture is crumbly and butter is incorporated into the flour (be careful not to overdo it).
  • Put mixture in a 13x9 pan which has been sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray (or, use additional butter).
  • Spread mixture and pat down.
  • Heat open jars of jam in the microwave for a minute or two so that jam will spread easily over the crumb mixture.
  • Spread the 1.5 jars of jam over the mixture in the pan. (Pro Tip: buy three jars so you have enough jam for two batches!).
  • Repeat steps 1 through 4 above, but this time pulse a little longer so that the crumb mixture is a little chunkier (not much though!) and sprinkle over layer of jam.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until golden brown.
