tasty and easy

 Star(s)

DONNA STAFFANSON from GANSEVOORT, NY

I used slice and bake sugar cookie dough; sliced it into 12 circles to warm than it spread easily to cover the pan bottom. I also forgot to stir the jam before spreading it, and it worked out fine. My daughter has braces so I left the almonds off a small section, personally I preferred it that way too!

    Very Good Dessert

    CHRISTINE GARVIN from Littlestown, PA

    I made this dessert and was impressed at how easy it was. My husband thought it was very good as well. I did cut back on the amount of almonds the recipe called for.

    Great Bar

    Debi Biendara from South Saint Paul, MN

    I would like to tell you that I won a bake cook off with these bars!!! I would have to say the men in my company liked them the best. I thought they were very good, but I would watch the almonds, I think there were too many. I will make them again and not put as much almonds on top

    Crowd pleaser

    Sheila Refoy from Laguna Niguel, CA

    This is very easy to make and everybody raved about it. I made this recipe with dark chocolate chips and that went well with the raspberry. Definitely a repeater. :)

    Awesome!

    Diane Callahan from ALBION, RI

    This recipe was just awesome! After the first bite you are totally hooked and cannot get enough. Since I am not a fan of almonds, I made mine with chopped walnuts. Absolutely delicious! Will definitely make again and again!!

    Delish!

    ann ferraro from Watertown, MA

    Very easy, fast and delicious recipe. My husband though cannot eat nuts so I put a drop of almond flavoring in the cream cheese which gives it that touch of almond taste.

    Perfect take-along dessert

    janet schwarz from gahanna, OH

    This beats the run-of-the-mill brownie take-along by leaps and bounds. The comments are always superior, for something so easy to make, and so much fun to eat. I also subsitute strawberry jam, and find it works just as well.

    These are so good and easy to make. They were a hit at the Ice Cream Social we had.

    Delicious? - Yes they are!

    Gwen Malinowski from CHICAGO, IL

    The first time I made these bars, I did not have the white chips or raspberry jam on hand. I used all milk chocolate chips and strawberry jam. The result was excellent. The second time, I prepared the recipe as written and the results were just as good. Next time I will try a different flavored jam and a different combination of chocolate, or different nuts. This recipe is very versatile to what you have on hand.

    Best Bars

    Amy Mortensen from CHICAGO, IL

    I found this recipe last fall and I've made it for almost every holiday since and it has been a huge hit with both my family and my fiance's family. My fiance liked it so much he asked me to make it for the potluck at his job. Well he called me the afternoon of the potluck to ask me for the recipe because 4 of the ladies he works whith were asking. This is a super easy recipe with ingredients I always have. Best bars ever!

    Texture is everything

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    These bars sounded so good, I couldn't wait to bake them. When my family ate them for dessert, you could hear the crunching. The raspberry jam should have been seedless (strained), and the white chocolate morsels didn't completely melt--plus the crunchy nuts on top. The flavor was good, but the texture was "off".
