I'm sure these would also be good with strawberry or blackberry jam.
Preheat oven to 325
1/2 cup butter
1 pkg vanilla or white chips, divided
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp almond flavored extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
1/4 cup sliced almonds
-In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter; add 1 cup chips (do not stir).
-In a small mixing bowl, beat eggs until foamy; gradually add sugar. Stir in chip mixture and almon extract.
-Combine flour an salt; add to egg mixture just until combined.
-Spread half of the batter into a greased 9-in square baking pan. Bake at 325 for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Microwave jam for 30 seconds; spread over warm crust.
- Stir remaining chips in the remaining batter; drop by teaspoonfuls over the jam layer. Sprinkle with almonds.
-Bake 30-35 minutes longer or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
