This is more a heavily modified recipe from Ina Garten (The Barefoot Contessa). She made Raspberry crumble bars. But for the SECOND TIME. Her very same shortbread recipe stuck to my pan...And even the dough was near tasteless. So I just added too it, and changed the filling! I made these for my friends parents, and snuck them into their bags before they left for their honeymoon. And they RAVED about them. So I hope you enjoy these!!! P.S. This works with any preserves / jam. So change it up!!! :) Pic credit:
