Raspberry White Chocolate Bars

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

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed

    I, personally, don't think the commenter called "sewzanne" made or read the entire recipe. There are 2 layers to these bars so the batter is divided and made into 2 layers. Who gives a dang what the gov't wants either!!

    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.
