My mom's Jam Squares ~♥

Sweet, sweet childhood mom♥....whom I miss with all my heart, yellow roses, this teaset of hers.....
and her jam squares that no one could make like she could., melt in the mouth...........
Here is the recipe I found her handwriting....thank goodness for recipe journals and notes and fond memories....
I love you so, my darling mom ♥ xx

♥♥♥Apricot Jam Squares♥♥♥....

115g Stork Margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg beaten
2 cups of cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
5ml vanilla
Apricot Jam

Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the beaten egg and vanilla and mix 'til light and fluffy.
Add the flour and baking powder. Press half the dough in a swiss roll tin and freeze the other half for a few minutes until firm. Spread the jam over the dough in the tin and then grate the other half on top.
Bake at 190deg C for 25 to 30 minutes 'til golden. Cut into squares.

We woke to a misty morning today breathing in the smell of the sea...the sign that spring is here and a very hot day is on it's way........

Indeed a beautiful day filled with sweet memories ♥♥♥.....

A keeper for my boys~ ♥♥

See you soon!
