This is one of my husband’s favorite desserts that I make. The shortbread crust is so buttery and delicious on its own, but when you add jam and a crumble topping, it’s out of this world!
You can definitely swap the strawberry jam for your favorite. And if you have any homemade jam on hand, that is definitely the way to go.
