    MarlaM's Note:

    These bars sound so good! I'm already thinking that I'll have to include these on my Christmas cookie trays! This recipe is from the 2002 Taste of Home Annual Recipes cookbook.

      These bars are absolutely delicious. At first I thought I didn't have enough batter to cover the bottom of the pan, but it spread out in the oven. I agree that the preserves do not need heating (I use Bonne Maman). I also toast the almonds. This is now a permanent fixture on my Christmas cookie trays. Thank you MarlaM!

      This is amazingly delicious and very easy to make. (NOTE: typo in step 5: Spread HALF the mixture into the pan. And, you don't have to melt the jam) I'm a fan of raspberry filled treats and now search for recipes that use less flour. I substituted half the flour with almond meal for richer flavor and the vanilla chips make it truly decadent. I also used half sugar and half Splenda and couldn't tell any difference. If you, like me, prefer to enjoy less cake and more flavor, you MUST try this recipe.

      I also have been making these since finding them in Taste of Home. They not only taste wonderful but look beautiful too. I lost my recipe thanks for sharing.
