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.

Holy moly! I don't even know how to describe the awesomeness of these little bars. I did not add the chocolate chips because I felt they would overpower the raspberry flavor too much, and was happy without them. The crust was buttery and just the right thickness for my taste. Thank you!

I actually make this square out of the Robin Hood Baking Festival Cookbook. The recipe I use calls for milk chocolate covered caramel balls instead of the chocolate chips. However, I haven't been able to find them lately. This square is truly delicious but very rich. Cut into small pieces!

Would be better w/ white chocolate chips instead of chocolate chips. Loved the short cake crust. I made them for a party only a couple people tried them cookies and cake went super fast. I used 2 cups of chocolate chips and 2 cups of Rasp preserves.

These are delicious--and they had better be, since they contain TWO CUPS of butter. But they are so worth it! Short and flavorful and rich and sweet! Mmm. I loved the synthesis of white chocolate, shortbread, and raspberry--brilliant! Thanks for sharing this recipe; it's a keeper for sure.

These are excellent and easy. I used a 12oz jar of preserves and 1 Cup white chocolate chips. Next time, I'm also going to try cutting down on the butter.

loved these. Next time, I will bake the shortbread layer about 18 to 20 minutes. the crust was a little hard. My husband and I both enjoyed these. I kept going back for more. I also added about 1 1/2 cups jam. I think I will use the 2 cups next time I make these.

These are excellent! They were a big hit with everyone who tried them. I only used 1 cup of jam and 1 cup of chocolate chips and that was enough. Thanks!

Very good bars, I didn't use so much sugar and for the topping I put only 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of sugar...still to sweet for me...
