Raspberry White Chocolate Bars Recipe

Raspberry White Chocolate Bars Recipe

A co-worker's mother gave me this gem of a recipe a few years back. I can never decide what's more appealing—the attractive look of the bars or their incredible aroma while they're baking! Everyone who tries these asks for the recipe. —Mimi Priesman Pace, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 package (10 to 12 ounces) white baking chips, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, melt butter. Remove from the heat; add 1 cup chips (do not stir). In a small bowl, beat eggs until foamy; gradually add sugar. Stir in chip mixture and almond extract. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to egg mixture just until combined.
  • 2. Spread half of the batter into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 325° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 3. In a small saucepan, melt jam over low heat; spread over warm crust. Stir remaining chips into the remaining batter; drop by spoonfuls over the jam layer. Sprinkle with almonds.
  • 4. Bake 30-35 minutes longer or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 2 dozen.

"They sound good, but the serving size is unrealistic- 24 bars out of a 9" square pan? The gov't is requiring food companies to change labels to reflect accurate serving sizes; I hope that will be true for recipes that include that information as well."

"These are so good, but remember to divide batter before the first baking. I always forget, and have to scrape it back out of the pan."

"Every time I make this recipe, several ask me for the recipe. I always double it for a 9x13 pan, though. They go too fast!"

"I have made these many times; they are always a big hit and go very quickly. I substitute almond bark (vanilla) chopped in the food processor instead of the vanilla chips. It's a lot less expensive and tastes the same."
