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.

This made a very pretty cookie however between the frosting, the jam, and the sugar in the batter this was just excessively sweet; so much so that my kids wouldn't eat it.

Thanks BESTTEENCHEF for this wonderful recipe! I was a little concerned about the stickiness of the dough but I shouldn't have because they were perfect. Nice almond flavor and my grandmother was delighted to take home the left over bars. They are extremely pretty too!

These were very good. Only I used about a cup of flour because I found the batter to be not thick enough. But overall these created a beautiful delicious bar.
