Raspberry Bars

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 cup unsalted butter at room temp.
1 egg
1 10 oz. jar raspberry preserves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9x13 baking pan.
In a large bowl combine all ingredients except preserves. Beat at low speed until mixture is crumbly, about 2-3 minutes. Reserve 1 cup of the crumb mixture. Press remaining crumb mixture into prepared baking pan. Spread preserves coming not quite to the edge. Crumble reserved mixture over preserves. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely and cut into squares.

  4. Hi Tanya, they are kind of like a shorbread cookie with raspberry, and they are so easy to make, my kind of recipe ;)

    Buffie, I'm so glad you guys liked them! Melissa really liked them too, I only saved her one before I sent the rest off with Larry, so I guess I will be making more tonight.

    Larry, ooooh sorry, too funny. Tell the guys I will try to make something for them for tomorrow.
