This recipe was personally prepared by Susan Fink for the September 2015 meeting with the Curious Cuisiners.
" I love raspberries and shortbread together. The great thing about this recipe is that it uses one shortbread dough two ways; pat some on the bottom of the pan for the crust, and the rest (with some granola added) becomes the crumble topping.
I use raspberry jam with seeds because I feel its more raspberry-like, but you can certainly use seedless jam as well."

This is a Barefoot Contessa recipe.

How to Make RASPBERRY CRUMBLE BARS

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place the butter and the sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and mix on medium speed just until combined. With the mixer on low, add the vanilla.
  3. Sift the flour and the salt together and, with the mixer on low, slowly add to the butter mixture, mixing it until it almost comes together in a ball.
  4. Turn the ball out onto a board. Lightly pat two-thirds of the dough evenly on the bottom oa a 9-inch square baking pan and about 1/4 inch up the sides. Spread with the jam, leaving a 3/4 inch border. Mix the granola into the remaining dough with your hands.
  5. Break the dough into small bits and distribute it on top of the jam, covering most of the surface. Sprinkle the almonds on top.
  6. Bake the bars for 45 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely and cut into 9 or 12 bars. Sprinkle lightly with confectioners sugar.
