Tate's Bake Shop Raspberry Squares

"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."

  1. 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!


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
