A nice fruity cookie bar! Be sure you use preserves or 'all fruit" rather than jelly or jam. Feel free to substitute your favorite flavor for raspberry!

  4. Gradually add the flour, beating until incorporated.
  5. Remove 1/3 cup of the mixture and reserve.
  6. Beat the confectioner's sugar into the remaining mixture in the bowl; pat into the bottom of the prepared pan.
