    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!

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 pie dough
    • 1/4 cup raspberry jam
    • 1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine, softened
    • 2/3 cup sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 2/3 cup flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • red food coloring
    • green food coloring


    • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
    • 1 1/2-2 cups icing sugar
    • 2 tablespoons cream or 2 tablespoons milk
    • 1 teaspoon almond extract


    1. 1
      Prepare pie dough for one crust unbaked shell. Line an 8-inch square ungreased cake pan with pastry.
    2. 2
      Spread with raspberry jam.
    3. 3
      Cream butter and sugar together thoroughly. Add eggs, beating until light and fluffy. Add flour and salt; blend well.
    4. 4
      Divide batter in half. Colour half pink and half green.

      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.
