    Raspberry Almond Bars

    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

    2 eggs

    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.

    - Cool on a wire rack.  Cut into 2 dozen bars.

    Yum! Those look good!! I would probably leave the almonds off the top, but they look DE-LISH!

    I just made these, yum! The white chocolate perfectly mellows out the tartness of the raspberries. We are lucky enough to have a grandma that makes homemade jam from raspberries in her own yard. It is not seedless, but the seeds weren't noticeable in this recipe so you could use either one.

    Missy Jill - Yay! I'm glad they turned out for you. Good to know about the homemade jam because my mom makes it too. I like it better than the store variety but wasn't sure it would work in this application.
