    BestTeenChef's Note:

    This is my favorite bar recipe. It tastes delicious and is well worth the effort! This would be a treat on anybody's Christmas tray or maybe even a potluck. I used Oil crust for 1 pie Oil crust for 1 pie for the pie dough and it worked out great! Hope you enjoy it!

      I was surprised at how much the raspberry came through on the cooked bars! I did feel the almond extract was a tad to strong-- and I LOVE almond extract. If i were to make again I'd prob use slightly less. These did seem more "cakey" thank cookie-like. And I was looking for a cookie taste. But pretty good.

      My new favorite square. I used a "half the sugar" jam type spread and added a little almond extract to the batter and it was perfect.

      Delicious! I use shortbread instead of pie dough for the crust.
