Stir in 1 cup of white chocolate chips.

To help make your raspberry jam more spreadable, warm it slightly in the microwave for 30 seconds on high.

You want spreadable, not super runny.

Once your bottom layer of crust has cooked, remove pan from oven.

Gently spread spoonful’s of raspberry jam over your cookie crust, making an even layer.

pro tips for perfect raspberry cookie bars

  • Be sure to heat your raspberry jam for a few seconds in the microwave before adding it to your cookie crust. This helps the jam spread so much easier.
  • Unless you are a fan of raspberry seeds in your teeth, pick up a jar of seedless raspberry jam for this fruit bar recipe.
  • Lining your baking pan with parchment paper helps for an easy removal.
  • Be sure to let these raspberry crumble bars cool completely before trying to remove the bars from the baking pan. They are extremely tender!
  • Want to try other fruit flavors? Go for it!!! The raspberry jam can be switched out for other flavors of jams so try them all!!
  • The bars will stay fresh in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5 days.

why use seedless jam in raspberry bars recipe?

I prefer to use seedless jam in this raspberry cookie bar recipe because I hate picking seeds out of my teeth.

Seedless raspberry jam is easy to find and usually mixed in with the other jams and jellies in the peanut butter aisle of your local supermarket. 

If you are unable to find seedless jam, you can use jam with seeds but you may want to run it through a small mesh strainer first. 

The seeds are harmless but who wants to be picking seeds out of their teeth all day?

whole or sliced almonds for raspberry bars?

You can use whole almonds for your raspberry almond bars but you will want to do a rough chop on them first before adding them to your recipe.

The flavor will obviously not change but it’s easier to eat raspberry almond bars when you don’t have huge crunchy pieces of almond to get through.
