Holiday Strawberry Bars

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks, beaten
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped walnuts (I use pecans)
1/2 cup strawberry jam (I use other flavors at times)
In a bowl, beat butter until fluffy, add sugar and egg yolks.  Blend in flour and walnuts.  Press half the dough into a greased 8" X 8" baking pan.  Spread jam over top, keeping jam about 1/2" from edge of pan.  Add remaining dough, spreading it over top of jam layer.  Press dough down with floured hands.  Bake at 325 degrees for one hour.
cool cut into squares.  Makes about 2 dozen.
