  1. In a bowl, combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press onto the bottom of a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until set and the edges are lightly browned.
  2. Meanwhile, for topping, combine eggs and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda; add to egg mixture. Stir in walnuts. Carefully spread jam over hot crust. Pour egg mixture over jam. Bake 16-20 minutes longer or until browned and set. Cool. Cut into bars.
