Raspberry-Chocolate Meringue Squares

My family loves all sorts of cookies, like this luscious treat with a buttery crust, raspberry jam, chocolate and meringue. Bake it for a buffet, party or household treat. —Nancy Heishman, Las Vegas, Nevada

Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites, room temperature, divided use
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 3 tablespoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Reserve 2 egg whites in a small bowl. In a large bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in remaining egg white; gradually add flour to creamed mixture, mixing well.
  • Press into a greased 8-in. square baking pan. Bake 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Increase oven setting to 400°.
