Fruit Filled Shortbread Bars

If you are a big cookie fan and love shortbread, you’re going to love this filled shortbread cookie bar with your favorite fruit.

The cookie is bursting with a melt in your mouth buttery crust that has toasted coconut and pecans infused into the dough.

A fruit filling is made by boiling dried fruits or you can use fresh when available we use lots of dried apricots and figs all winter long.

After the fruits are chopped fine this goes in between the crust and topped with a crumble for an out-of-this-world flavor in every morsel.

We have several options for you to choose from using this basic shortbread cookie dough and no cutting involved just a one-pan easy dessert cookie.

If you’re in a hurry you can even use jams, preserves or marmalade fillings!

This shortbread bar is so adaptable it can be a different flavor every time you bake them with just one recipe.
