THIS elegant bar cookie is loaded with wonderful flavors and very easy to assemble. A nice extra touch is to sprinkle the bars with confectioner’s sugar.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 6, 2014

This recipe stars as a 5* recipe! I did adjust the recipe by using 1/2 butter and 1/2 margarine to conserve on my butter supply! I used 1/2 tsp. salt. I also greased and floured my 9" square baking pan and used about 1-3/4

cups semi-sweet chocolate chips and almost 3/4 cup seedless raspberry jam as I had JUST that amount! I did combine the crumbs, reserving 1 cup for the topping, along with the 1/4 cup of combined pecans/walnuts!

I also baked 30 minutes at 375o F. I ran a knife around the edges of the squares to loosen. I found that I didn't

need to chill the bars after all!

They cut well-they WERE warm, but HAD cooled down! I think because I'd had SLIGHTLY less jam, the bars held together! But then, if chilling them AFTER cooling DOES help to firm these bars, WelshieGirl DID have a really good idea! This recipe certainly is on my list for future bar cookies!

I actually saw this recipe in my newest TOH recipe book: Easy Weeknight Dinners! I printed the recipe after going on the TOH Website! delowenstein

When I was a kid, my aunt made raspberry bars and blind baked the bottom crust for 15 minutes. I tried it with this recipe, let the pan and crust cool before spreading the raspberry preserves, and then proceeded as directed. AWESOME! I also substituted slivered almonds for the walnuts in the topping, because it is what I had on hand. This recipe is very versatile. I will try it with apricot preserves next!

Really lovely receipe! I subsituted the walnuts for Hazelnuts, and it worked just as well!

Top Tip though: Jam/Chocolate filling will stay really runny for a long time after taking out of oven - once cooled a bit, put in fridge for an hour, then take out and cut! Also, line your tin with baking parchment that is long enough to be able to 'lift' the bake out once its cooled a bit!

It won't last long in our house!

These bars were a big hit! Made these bars for Christmas 2010 and my family loved them. They will be first on the list for all my holiday baking.
