Raspberry Bar Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by PianoCook

I got this recipe from a friend in high school and have made it almost every year since as a favorite on either Thanksgiving or Christmas. These are simple and yummy, and I crave them every fall! I usually fully process the walnuts into a fine powder because I don't like the texture of nuts, but they add a nice flavor.

This is a very good not too sweet bar cookie. I had trouble with the Crumble Topping. Mine was very sticky. Maybe I added too much margarine. I could not sprinkle it; I spooned it on and pressed each spoonful gently to spread it out. It baked okay with a little of the raspberry jam peeking through. I will definitely make this again. Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. For crust, mix ingredients together (I usually melt the butter first to make it even easier, but you don't have to) and pat into bottom of a 9-in. x 13-in. x 2-in. pan. Bake 12 minutes.
  3. For filling, stir ingredients together and spread over baked crust. You do not have to wait for the crust to cool.
  4. For crumble topping, mix ingredients together and sprinkle over top. Bake for 20 minutes.
