      What a great cookie/bar. The combination of chocolate and raspberry is just heavenly. A word of caution though .. it's very easy to over bake the crust. I did this the first time. I made them again today and much better results. Very elegant and definitely guest quality. This will probably become one of my favorite desserts. Updated 12/09 .. I was having problems with the chocolate and butter ... the chocolate was wanting to sieze. I looked for a dipping chocolate recipe here on Zaar and found one using solid shortening (Crisco). In fact the author stressed not to use butter. I tried another batch of the drizzling chocolate with the Crisco and exactly what i wanted ... nice, smooth chocolate and made a beautiful presentation. Also, I chilled the cookie base/jam before trying to spread the cream cheese on it ... That helped reduce the jam from wanting to pull up and swirl in with the cream cheese.

      Decadent & rich. Hard to spread the cream cheese mixture over the raspberry, it ended up a little "swirled", but the flavor still is the same. Definitely cut into small bites as this is sweet & rich like candy.

      I made this using strawberry jam Kittencal's Easy Refrigerator Strawberry Jam in place of raspberry, this is sweet so a small piece goes a long way, I was going to make this in a 13 x 9-inch pan and I should have gone with that intention I found the 15x10 pan was too large for the amount of batter, next time I will use a smaller pan, the taste was great, thanks for sharing Syd!
