Recently I received a package from my friend and swap partner who sent me a lovely jar of black Raspberry preserves. These preserves were too special not to put into a recipe. I adapted a recipe I had that called for apricot preserves and in the end the results were a very pretty and wonderful dessert. Hope you enjoy as much as my family and I did

These bars are really quite good, Cher! I substituted Smucker's Blackberry Jam for the raspberry and the results were fantastic! Otherwise, I prepared as instructed following all the steps as Cher listed. I loved the almond addition in the topping adding a nice crunchy texture! Quite delicious and devoured by all!

Delicious!! We didn't have preserves, but I had made a thick and chunky, blueberry/raspberry syrup to go with french toast a few days ago, and that's what I used. I also didn't have almonds, but it was still so good!

I selected these to make for my Christmas guests. I used the red raspberry preserves and they were wonderful! Thanks for posting the recipe for SG!
