RECIPE: Raspberry Bars

roselin32August 5, 2003

These are a favorite from when we enjoyed the Linzer Torte cookies in Germany but these are much easier:

Raspberry Bars

2 1/2c all purpose flour

1 c sugar

1 c chopped pecans OR walnuts

1 c butter, softened

1 egg

1 10 jar raspberry preserves

Grease a 9x13" baking pan. In a large mixer bowl, combine all ingredients except preserves. Beat at low speed until mixture is crumbly about 2-3 minutes. Reserve 1 1/2 c of crumb mixture. Press remaining crumb mixture into baking pan.

Spread preserves to within 1/2" from edges of the unbaked crumb mixture. Crumble remaining crumb mix over preserves.

Bake for 40-50 minutes or til lightly browned. Cool completely and cut into bars.

I like bar cookies. And I brought some great raspberry preserves back with me from England & this will put it to good use. Thanks for posting it.

As the Scots say, "Not a problem", Ginger. Should go well for one of your weekend tea parties!

I posted a recipe for plum squares on the bear cookie thread that also uses raspberry preserves, Ginger.
