Saw Rachael Ray have one of these on her Hamptons on $40. a day episodes. I love Tate's chocolate chip cookies and have posted them here. I have the Tate's cookbook and I thought I'd share. This recipe has almonds and is similar to one posted here but the directions are different. Use the best jam-it really makes a difference. The chef likes Clearbrook Farms.

I love all the baked goods I have had from Tate's Bake Shop, so I was really anxious to try these. I followed the recipe exactly, using a nice premium raspberry jam. The bars are actually small squares, which is the perfect bite-size. The bars are a bit on the soft side, and tend to crumble, though, so I was a bit disappointed in the texture. Taste is wonderful though!
