A sweet raspberry filling is sandwiched between a crispy crust and a crunchy brown sugar topping in these satisfying snack bars, submitted by field editor Pat Habiger of Spearville, Kansas.


  • 1-1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a bowl, combine 1-1/4 cups flour and sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Press into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Place on a wire rack. Spread jam over hot crust.
  2. In a bowl, beat eggs, brown sugar and vanilla. Combine baking soda and remaining flour; stir into the egg mixture just until combined. Fold in walnuts. Spoon over jam; spread evenly.
  3. Bake 17-20 minutes longer or until golden brown and set. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.
