Dairy-Free Strawberry Shortbread Bars
On Memorial Day, our family usually gets together with our neighbors for a cookout where everyone brings their traditional offerings. It wouldn’t be a party without certain casseroles, coleslaws, salads, and desserts. Sometimes I like to mix things up, though and bring something new … like strawberry shortcake. A great dish, but not very portable or easy to eat at a picnic. But then it occurred to me – what if I ditch the shortcake and opt for frosted shortbread bars instead?
These Strawberry Shortbread Bars combine the flavors of strawberry shortcake in easy-to-eat bar cookies. I couldn’t resist making things a bit messier by adding So Delicious Dairy Free Vanilla Coconut Milk ice cream to my plate, though, and I won’t blame you if you do the same.
As made below, the shortbread bars, frosting and all, are dairy-free and vegan. To keep them allergy-friendly, including peanut-, tree nut-, and soy-free, be sure to choose your margarine and other ingredients wisely.
If possible, plan ahead! These strawberry shortbread bars do require a bit of last-minute assembly so they don’t get soggy, but I think they’re worth the effort. Happy Memorial Day!
