Strawberry Hazelnut Bars

(post, Jenny Weber)

A quick little posting until I can post an appropriate blog. Fresh strawberries purchased at the local Farmer's Market. A new recipe to try courtesy of "Rustic Fruit Desserts."  Something delectable-sounding and perfect for the picnic I was going to later that evening.  Cherry almond bars. The problem? No cherries. No almonds. But I had those fresh strawberries. And a last handful of hazelnuts. A little secret ingredient added for extra kick to the crust and I had my strawberry hazelnut bars. Delicious.

My next journey into a rustic fruit dessert courtesy of the book? The strawberry ricotta tart. Except I plan to substitute again. Stay tuned.
