I have made these for several years now for Christmas and they are loved by everyone. It is a very different bar cookie but very tasty and beautiful too. I found this a few years ago in one of my Woman's Day magazines. If you love sour and sweet these you will love. I hope you enjoy.

I tried adding raspberries to these and it turned out delicious. So, I am adding it to the recipe too.
