English Walnut Bars



This recipe for delicious and moist WALNUT BARS was handed down to me by my grandma many….many years ago.

It wouldn’t be Christmas at grandmas without her famous English Walnut Bars and sometimes…..if we were lucky enough…..she made them for special occasions.

I don’t remember the last time I made these delicious English Walnut Bars …..I was organizing my recipes and making baking list for Christmas….and there they were….so I decided it was time to introduce them to my sweets loving family.

English Walnut Bars are one of my favorite little desserts…… moist…..delicious….dainty and bursting with flavor.

The Raspberry jam in the middle gives them the sweet, fruity taste and the walnut meringue top layer makes them hard to resist.







  • 2 cup Flour
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • Lemon Zest
  • 1/2 cup Raspberry Jam
  • 4 Egg Yolks
  • 1 1/2 cup Icing Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup Walnuts (ground)
  • 5 Egg Whites

STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease 9 x13″ baking pan.

STEP 2: Beat together the sugar, butter and egg yolk. Gradually add the flour and baking powder. Fold in the lemon zest. Spread the batter into the pan. Evenly spread raspberry jam over the batter.

STEP 3: In a large bowl beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

STEP 4: In another bowl beat together the egg yolks with sugar gradually add nuts. Fold the mixture into beaten egg whites and layer on top of the raspberry jam.

STEP 5: Bake 35-40 minutes or until done. Let it cool in the pan before cutting.

These walnut bars are great for bake exchange or you can freeze them in air-tight container.
