I actually won the "Bar Cookie" division at our local fair with these. The only thing I do differently is to increase the dough mixture by 1/2. That way I can make the bottom crust a little thicker, and have more crumbles for the top--one of my families' all time favorite desserts! Thank you for posting!
These are fabulous bars! The raspberry flavor is a hidden surprise. I melted my chocolate chips/condensed milk in the microwave for 2 minutes. I suggest greasing the baking dish very well and not spreading the jam to the sides (since it will bake on and harden as it cools). Also, after cooling a bit, remove the bars from the pan (it will be easier than when they are completely cooled). I found this recipe in the "Can't Believe It's Kosher!" cookbook.
Amazing! Every one of my friends who has tried these has raved about them. The only thing that I will change next time (and this is my fault) is to use a different raspberry jam. I used preserves that I had in my fridge this time around and they didn't melt enough to cover all of the bars. These are definitely going to become a staple of my go-to baked goods.
