This is a delicious bar cookie with a raspberry and chocolate layer between a shortbread bottom layer and a crumb topping top layer. These are Christmas tradition at our house.

YUM! This is exactly what I was looking for! I love the flavor of the shortbread. Next time I will cut down on the bake time of the shortbread layer (a little hard) and the final step I baked a bit longer for the crumb topping to turn brown.
