Strawberry Jam Bars

There's a golden crust nicely seasoned with nutmeg, allspice and honey on these sweet bars. The recipe was given to me by an aunt.

    These have a nice flavor to them. Dropping the batter onto the strawberry layer is rather tedious, and my bars were a little bit too soft. Maybe I needed to bake them longer.
