Fruit Cheddar Bars
------------------------------
2 3/4 cup Unbleached Flour
1 t Baking Powder
1/2 t Salt
3/4 cup Butter
2 1/2 cup Cheddar; Sharp, Shredded
2 each Eggs; Lg, Beaten
1/2 cup Peach Preserves
1/2 cup Strawberry Preserves
---------------------
Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Sift the dry
ingredients together and cut in the butter until the
pieces are the size of peas. Add the cheese and
toss lightly. Add the eggs and blend well. Chill one
quarter of the dough. Press the remaining dough
into the bottom and sides of an ungreased 15 1/2 X
10 1/2 X 1/2-inch jelly roll pan. Spread half the
dough with the peach preserves and the other half

with the strawberry preserves. Roll the chilled
dough, on a lightly floured surface, to 1/4-inch thick.
Cut the dough into 1/2-inch strips and place the
strips diagonally across the top of the preserves
making a lattice of the strips. Press the ends of the
dough against the side dough to seal. Bake in the
preheated oven for 35 minutes or until lightly
browned. Cool before cutting into 2 X 3-inch bars.
